Lapis lazuli – “Sunken treasures”

A stone of protection that may be worn to guard against psychic attacks, Lapis Lazuli quickly releases stress, bringing deep peace.  It brings harmony and deep inner self-knowledge.  Encourages self-awareness, allows self-expression and reveals inner truth, providing qualities of honesty, compassion and morality to the personality.  Stimulates objectivity, clarity and encourages creativity.  Lapis Lazuli assists to confront and speak one’s truth and inspires confidence.  It bonds relationships, aiding in expression of feelings and emotions. (From Charms of Light)

Lapis lazuli contains pyrite, which is known as “fool’s gold” since it tricked many people into thinking it was real gold, so its characteristic is the flecks of gold scattered in this deep blue stone. Continuing with the gold them, I thought it best to wrap it in brass wire. However I have seen lapis lazuli in copper wire, which looks just as nice. 🙂
