What do you know about Lapis Lazuli



What You didn't Know about this stone



This is an Antique Ring
of Lupis





To the right is an Egyptian Scarcab


This is the pendant found on Egyptian King Tutanhkamun that is yellow lapis.

Egyptian cultures made a practice of burying a Lapis lazuli Scarab with the dead.
They believed it to have protective powers. Some ancient Cultures prized it more than gold. The Greeks referred to it as sapphire. The Egyptians used it as a symbol of truth.,Also say it is used with care as as it will help you become a channel to the afterlife. Some say it has Healing powers.. It is said that dreaming of lapis would foretell love forever and faithful. There is a crystal lapis too.

In ancient times lapis lazuli was called sapphire.
They have found pendant circa 2900 BC. around Egypt.
known for spiritual healing . In Russia I saw an entire room
of Malachite in the Hermitage Museum
in Leningrad. That is my favorite stone.
