Lapis Lazuli is one of the oldest spiritual stones known to man and has a rich history of use as such since ancient times. Prized in Egypt, it was used in scarabs, jewelry, powder for dyes, and even in the sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen. In Medieval Europe, it warded off the evil eye and attracted the spirits of light. Its powder was used to make ultramarine blue- a favorite of Michelangelo.
Lapis activates the Higher Self and enhances intellectual ability by stimulating thirst of knowledge, truth and creativity. Good for memory enhancement, Lapis promotes deep communication. Lapis energizes both the Third Eye psychic centers and the Throat Chakra. It reveals both opportunities for growth and for utilizing one's gifts.
Turquoise has been used in jewelry for thousands of years. One of the oldest known examples is a bracelet belonging to the Egyptian queen Zer who ruled around 5500 BCE. Many Native American tribes also valued this stone believing it to be a bridge between Earth and Sky, grounding while remaining open to Spirit.
Turquoise promotes empathy, yet stabilizes mood swings. It stimulates the ThirdEye for use in mediation and activates the ThroatChakra, aiding in communication. Turquoise is a stone of self-forgiveness, self-acceptance and release from beliefs that no longer serve.
This bracelet is made with Campitos and Sonoran Turquoise.
Clasp, jump rings and wire guards are sterling silver. Approx. 8 inches in length.
