Lapis lazuli is made up of the blue minerals Lazurite & Sodalite along with white Calcite and Pyrite, the gold sparkle seen in this crystal. If there is a lot of calcite then the crystal will be a paler blue and this has been given the name Denim Lapis.
Lapis lazuli is associated with the 3rd eye and also the throat. It is one of the oldest spiritual stones, being used to stimulate psychic abilities and intuition. It expands awareness and helps in connecting with ones higher self. It can also enhance dream work and spiritual journeying.
Lapis lazuli is a stone of truth in communication, encouraging honesty in speaking or writing. A crystal grid of Lapis can bring calm and loving communication for a home with temperamental teenagers, or children with Asperger's syndrome or autism.
Emotionally, Lapis helps to reveal our inner truth and enhance self-awareness. It supports during the release of suppressed emotion or anger and allows for self-expression. It gives a clearer perspective of one’s whole life. In friendships it encourages honesty, dignity and compassion.
Physically it is said that Lapis lazuli can help with problems in the throat, larynx and vocal chords as well as hearing loss and other problems associated with the ear and nasal passages. It can help circulation, cardiac rhythm, lower blood pressure and reduce vertigo. It can also relieve cramps, stiffness and inflammation. It is said that to sooth an eye infection, rub it with a piece of lapis warmed in water.

My experience of living with lapis lazuli;
Over the past few weeks I have been training a lady to take over in the old job that I have left. It has been challenging and rather stressful for me. On the first day that I carried this crystal, I decided that I needed to be honest with the business owners and informed them by email of my need to move on with my new life. We came to a mutual agreement that made me feel a lot better and I have now completed the last day of work there.
I had a number of lessons given to me this week regarding an emotional weakness that I have. I gained some clarity by meditating and being alone to work on this.
By the fourth day of carrying this crystal I felt like I had a blocked ear. It was something I have not had before and it cleared up after just one day. I didn’t sleep well with Lapis, so didn’t sleep with it every night.
