Lapis Lazuli with Azurite and Pyrite Talisman


Lapis Lazuli is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth.  It has been one of the most sought after stones for its deep, celestial blue hue, representing royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. 

Lapis Lazuli was among the most highly prized tribute paid to Egypt, obtained from the oldest mines in the world, worked from around 4000 B.C. and still in use today. The golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen was richly inlaid with Lapis, as were other burial ornaments of Egyptian kings and queens. It was used extensively in scarabs, pendants and other jewelry, and ground into powder for dyes, eye shadow and medicinal elixirs. In the dry, barren land of the Egyptians, this deep cobalt blue color was a spiritual contrast to their arid desert hues. The gold flecks were like stars in their night-time sky and by meditating on these colors they felt supernatural forces would transform their lives. The garments of priests and royalty were dyed with Lapis to indicate their status as gods themselves.

A stone of truth, Lapis encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. Wear it for all forms of deep communication. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships.  Lapis Lazuli is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning. It is excellent for enhancing memory. 

The name "pyrite" is after the Greek "pyr" meaning "fire." This name was given because pyrite can be used to create the sparks needed for starting a fire if it is struck against metal or another hard material. Pyrite is associated with fire signs in the zodiac and is often associated with gold. The two minerals often form together, and in some deposits pyrite contains enough included gold to warrant mining.

Pyrite is said to be excellent for boosting vitality and to help one accomplish challenging tasks in the physical world.  It enhances will power and aides one in overcoming fear and anxiety to help one establish a positive attitude to take on the task at hand. Pyrite is a powerful protection stone which shields and protects against all forms of negative vibrations and/or energy, and can give one the courage to banish these influences from one’s life. Pyrite stimulates creativity and feeds the qualities of ambition and persistence, helping one to carry things through to completion.  It increases mental clarity and focus and is an idea stone for students.  It supports one in taking assertive action, protecting others and the earth, and developing the inner warrior for the benefit of the community.  Pyrite assists one in seeing behind facades, promoting an understanding of that which lies beneath words and actions.
