PHYSICAL: Lapis Lazuli is an ornamental rock--where more minerals are made of combinations of elements, Lapis is a rock composed of multiple minerals. It gets its blue shade from the mineral lazurite, and also displays inclusions of white calcite and golden pyrite. Lapis has been mined continuously since the time of Cleopatra, and the mines in Afghanistan are the oldest continuously operating mines in the world.

 

METAPHYSICAL/CULTURAL: Lapis Lazuli is associated with royalty and virtue. Lapis is connected to psychic power and intuition, and is said to enhance these abilities. Lapis is associated with the third eye chakra (7th) and the element of wind.
