This gorgeous, opulent, bright royal blue, large-format piece has been adored & adorned since antiquity, with its use tracing back to the ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Minoans, Chinese, Greeks and Romans. Its prominent use is demonstrated in the death mask of King Tutankhamen, which is inlaid with turquoise and carnelian in bright gold. Famous paintings such as The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gosh, the Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer and famous frescoes in the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo used lapis lazuli to create the stunning blue hues in their paintings, and even Cleopatra used ground lapis lazuli as eyeshadow.
Not only is lapis lazuli believed to guard against evil when worn, it is also said to balance the third eye chakra, which is thought to influence sight and hearing. As well, it is believed to help our inner work when releasing emotional burdens and confronting grief and trauma, while also aiding to restore the immune, respiratory and nervous systems. By wearing this powerful stone, it is believed to help amplify communication skills, improve mental clarity, help you access your own divine capabilities and intuition, and shield you from negative energy and unwanted thought processes. A popular gem for men too; a fantastic statement piece and gift.
