Lapis Lazuli has been in my life longer than any other crystal. My step-grandmother was really into it and had it on her writing desk, which I would climb onto as a child and pretend to be a writer myself.
Lapis Lazuli is a beautiful deep blue with streaks of white, black and gold. This is because it’s actually a combination of many other crystals, including Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite. While this could lead us to assume that Lapis Lazuli contains all attributes of these, we’ll get into what Lapis Lazuli can do in a bit.
The History of Lapis Lazuli
This is an ANCIENT STONE, ya’ll. Like, dating all the way back to the 7th century BCE, where it was first mined in Afghanistan. Lapis Lazuli beads were found in Neolithic burial sites and in King Tut’s tomb. We’re talking OLD.
It has also been ground up into gunpowder and used in paint and decor. Cleopatra was said to wear Lapis Lazuli eyeshadow, which is the most fabulous thing I’ve ever heard.
Afghanistan remains the main source of Lapis Lazuli, but it is found around the globe in smaller amounts.
What Can Lapis Lazuli Do?
Due to its blue and gold pieces, it is said to connect your Solar Plexus and Third Eye chakras, leading to a deep sense of alignment. With super-charged intuition, your life path will become clear and decisions will be easier.
It is also said to enhance your creativity, particularly for artistic communication. As a writer and singer, this is right up my alley. However, I am also very interested in its ability to help me find a life path.
I have no idea what to do with my life. My problem is that I am interested in everything. I could just as easily become a forester as I could a librarian. Although I want to go back to school, I have no idea what to study or whether I even should. I need guidance, so why not look for it in an inanimate object?
However, I will be doing actual work to try to figure this out. I’m going to do daily journaling, meditating, yoga and soul-searching to try to at least narrow down my life path.
If you want to work with crystals yourself, I have a free crystal worksheet you can use:
If you want some Lapis of your own, you can buy them in bulk on Amazon (great for crystal grids if you use those!) You can buy them raw:
Or you can buy them tumbled, which I prefer:
