About Lapis Lazuli:
Lapis Lazuli has been used for more than 6,000 years for jewelry and ornamental objects. Lapis Lazuli is made up of 25 to 40 percent lazurite, plus several minerals (sodalite, hauyne, calcite, and pyrite) that influence the stones colors and inclusions. Mines in northeast Afghanistan and Pakistan are the major source of Lapis Lazuli.
Lapis Lazuli: Provides relief for headaches, sore throats, and varicose veins. It is also known to help with alleviating cramps, stiffness, and fertility problems. For people around the world, Lapis Lazuli is considered a stone of truth and friendship. The blue stone is reputed to promote harmony in relationships.
Citrine: Opens the higher mind to accept joy in one’s life, releasing anger and negative feelings, deep-seated fears, and destructive tendencies. Citrine reduces sensitivity to criticism and inspires creativity and self-expression. It raises self-esteem, and by letting go of the past, allows one to move forward optimistically to enjoy new experiences.
