Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue rock that has been dug up from the earth for thousands of years. It was used by ancient Egyptians and Assyrians to decorate their jewelry and sacred objects. The rock is mostly found in Afghanistan, China, and Chile. However, some areas have been depleted of natural Lapis lazuli deposits causing the price to increase tremendously.
Lapis lazuli is known as a protective stone, which can provide assistance in engaging with our spiritual side. It helps us to stay grounded when we are feeling out of balance or overly emotional. In order to get the most out of this gemstone, it should be placed on your third eye chakra (located between your eyebrows). Lapis Lazuli has always been associated with spiritual awareness and protection since humans first started using it in jewelry thousands of years ago.
