Lapis Lazuli Tumbled
These are nice pieces of "A" grade Tumbled Lapis Lazuli from Pakistan. Lapis Lazuli is made from a combination of minerals including Lazurite, Calcite, and Pyrite. It is said to have been in existence since the birth of time, and was used by ancient Hebrews on ceremonial robes. It was also a very popular stone for the ancient Egyptians who knew it as the "stone of heaven" and would use it in amulets, cylinder seals, scarabs and funerary masks.
Good for balancing the Throat Chakra, Lapis Lazuli reminds us of the power of the spoken word, fosters full verbal expression, and clears problems caused by "swallowing your tongue." Lapis Lazuli encourages clear expression when sharing information with others, including easier communication of anger.
Lapis Lazuli also protects against psychic attack, shielding negative energy and returning any negative vibrations to their source.
