Lapis Lazuli Is a deep vibrant blue metamorphic rock that is a mixture of minerals with Lazurite as the primary constituent; it sits at a 5-5.5 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. It is used as a semi-precious stone and has a long history of being praised for its intense color. Lapis forms alongside Pyrite and Calcite and these minerals are usually present within the Lapis.
The pigment widely used as Ultramarine was traditionally derived from Lapis Lazuli, and it is clear why! This exceptionally bright blue Buddha has a calming and yet invigorating effect from the Lapis Lazuli signature blue. This would be an excellent altar item, or for any home or office.
Lapis Lazuli is thought to open the Third Eye and help balance the Throat Chakra for aiding in communication. Lapis Lazuli is also considered to be a great stone for dream work, facilitating in spiritual journeys, and encouraging self-awareness.
