The name lapis lazuli derives from the Latin word “Lapis” which translates to “stone” along with the Arabic word “Azula” which translates to “blue.” Lapis Lazuli is a metamorphic rock known for its stunning deep royal blue color along with hints of shimmering gold.
The vibrant blue color comes from lazurite and a change of transfer between atoms of sulfur. Lapis Lazuli is known to be made up of three minerals, calcite, sodalite, and pyrite. In fact, pyrite is what contributes to those stunning golden specks located throughout the mineral. Lapis Lazuli contains a wax-like and glass-like luster and can be found to be either opaque or semitranslucent.
In crystal beliefs, it is said that lapis lazuli can be used as protection against psychic attacks. Not only is it seen as protection, but it is believed to bring peace and harmony as well as reveal inner truths and self-awareness. Due to these healing properties, lapis lazuli is also known as the “Wisdom Stone.”
