Beautiful Lapis Lazuli Pendant. Beautiful deep royal blue flecked with gold color (the pyrite in the structure). It is approx 26x23mm.
I acquire the rough material and cut, shape and polish it myself. I design and make the setting (typically in Sterling Silver).
Lapis Lazuli name comes from the Latin lapis, meaning“stone,” and the Persian lazhuward, meaning “blue.”
By its composition, it is a rock formed by multiple minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite, and is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks (pyrites). Lower-grade Lapis is lighter blue with more white than gold flecks, and is sometimes called denim Lapis.
Metaphysically there are several attributes. Not in any particular order: Enhances Spiritual Growth and Meditation; May aid in solving insomnia and enhance your dreams; May promote physical and emotional healing.
Lapis is associated with the brow (3rd eye) and throat chakras. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. Our consciousness is located here, and we relate to ourselves through this chakra (3rd eye).
