Stone Souls- Lapis Lazuli

The next stone featured in my Stone Souls series is Lapis Lazuli.


Blue Empress www.ravenworksstudio.com

Lapis Lazuli is a stone with a very colorful history. It's rich blue color has always made it an attractive stone to feature in jewelry, and has been used in such since prehistoric times. Later on, it's vivid blues were used as a paint, and to color cloth.

Lapis is a highly spiritual stone, and is used often in meditations or any any activities that connect to spirituality or the divine. This is also a stone that promotes peace and serenity. This makes it a good stone to foster harmony and friendship in all relations.

In terms of healing the body, Lapis is most often said to help boost the immune system, to help with conditions of the throat and provide aid with insomnia.

That necklace is just stunning. Lapis lazuli is one of my favorite stones, and your design really brings out its beauty.

I can not tell you how jealous I am. This is lovely. I am new to wire wrapping, and I mean new. I dont think I will ever be able to make something as lovely as the main gemstone setting.
