Lapis Lazuli has been used for centuries in many different cultures as jewelry and healing stones. It represents the sun and its light in many mythological traditions. In early times, Lapis Lazuli has been associated with the moon, the zodiac signs, chakras, crystals, gemstones, Mother Goddesses and the element, Earth. These associations help to explain why it is used for so many different things.
Lapis Lazuli comes from the quartz deposits that are found in the Himalayan Mountains. The stone forms a white calcite when it is still in its infancy, as a result of being under tremendous pressure within the quartz crystal. This causes the inside of the stone to break open, exposing a lovely deep blue color. As the stone grows, it becomes bluish-white in colour until finally turning purple.
Another reason that people wear this stone is due to its ability to encourage positive energy within a person. As the light radiating from the stone fades, the wearer begins to experience the presence of peace within their own being. This peace eventually manifests itself and increases the power of the wearer's positive energy. This positive energy also helps individuals achieve success in their lives. By wearing the stone, people are helping to activate their inner truth, which will lead them to achieving their own personal sense of inner happiness and success.
Lapis Lazuli has many symbols which have historic, religious, and spiritual significance. The ancient people of Egypt believed that it was their god's resting place. Every Egyptian Pharaoh was given a Lapis Lazuli necklace to wear on their necks. In Christianity, the Holy Bible also includes this semi-precious stone with other stones depicting Jesus and angels. One ancient myth describes how Mary, mother of Jesus, purchased the blue stone from a well on Mount Olive Tontear. After having an experience where she saw her deceased husband Jesus Christ, she threw the stone into the well, and then onto the sand, which led to the birth of Jesus.
Lapis Lazuli has been found to be one of nature's strongest rocks. In addition to its strength, it has a remarkable beauty that is unique among all of Earth's natural resources. It consists primarily of aluminum oxide, iron sulfide, and calcium carbonate, as well as a variety of manganese and magnesium properties. All of these elements have distinct physical characteristics that make them highly desirable for use in jewelry. This particular quality makes it one of only a few minerals in the world that can be used in jewelry and construction because it has so many desirable properties. It is also used to make a type of glassware that can be used to make beautiful glass windows, adding a touch of elegance to any home. It can also be cut into simple beads for use as borders or in other decorative designs on clothing.
Lapis Lazuli has been used throughout history as a grounding and spiritual stone. According to Native American Indian tribes, the stone can provide the wearer with the courage necessary to endure great hardships, as well as the knowledge they need to withstand great difficulties. In addition, Native American tribes believe the stone helps to protect the wearer from the evil eye, as well as help to make them more receptive to the spiritual teachings of their culture.
Many beautiful pieces of white calcite jewelry have been created with Lapis Lazuli, including a stunning necklace worn by actress Angelina Jolie. While there is no evidence to support the theory that Lapis Lazuli or white calcite had an impact on the queen of Cambodia, the beautiful necklace did spark some interest in the general public. Other valuable items in the collection include an exquisite sapphire ring worn by Princess Diana, and a fine blue necklace that were once owned by Princess Diana. These and other examples of semi-precious stone use have led to the recognition of Lapis Lazuli as a precious and elegant material for jewelry.
