Lapis lazuli is an ancient gem, and as such, has a storied history. Egyptian cultures made a practice of burying a lapis lazuli scarab with their dead, and believed it to offer protection.
The very earliest cultures valued lapis lazuli more highly than gold. Greeks spoke of an ancient sapphire which was included with gold, and this was unmistakably lapis. Some believed that dreaming of lapis would foretell love that would be forever faithful.
When working or meditating with Lapis Lazuli, it can bring matters more clearly to the mind. It is one of the most powerful stones and should be used with care. Wearing a Lapis Lazuli can help you to become a channel. The ancient Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli as a symbol of Truth.
Lapis Lazuli is a useful stone to wear as it is said to relieve anger and negative thoughts, as well as easing frustrations causing the anger.
The energy of these blue stones may intensify the growth of psychic abilities, intuition, channelling and aid you to contact your guardian angels.
As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery. Its secrets are locked beneath a pearly veil, and with them, our own hidden truths. Only within its reflected light can we begin to understand what it has to teach us.
Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon-an amulet of protection for travellers, a gift for lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy and a path to wisdom. Our ties to the moon are strong. As it waxes and wanes in cyclic perfection, it creates the tides and rhythms of our mother, Earth, and influences our behaviors, emotions and spiritual growth.
Moonstone calms and encourages, teaching us the natural rhythms of life. Moonstone has been used in Greek and Roman jewelry for nearly two thousand years, even longer in the Orient. It has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers, and is a traditional wedding gift there. It was a popular choice for jewelers in the Art Nouveau period, and in Europe it was believed to reconcile estranged lovers.
Moonstone is known as the traveller’s stone for the protection it affords, especially at night, and because of its uplifting quality of hope it has long been worn as a talisman to enhance the personality.
