I was first inspired by Lapis when I was in the Museum of Cairo many years ago. The use of gold with lapis is up there in yumminess with peanut butter and jelly. This bracelet uses faceted and non faceted lapis, crazy lace agate, ruby, green and blue turquoise, spiny oyster shell and a great brass bead from Tibet. Strung on a super strong jewelers elastic.
A stone of protection that may be worn to guard against psychic attacks, Lapis Lazuli quickly releases stress, bringing deep peace. It brings harmony and deep inner self-knowledge. Encourages self-awareness, allows self-expression and reveals inner truth, providing qualities of honesty, compassion and morality to the personality. Stimulates objectivity, clarity and encourages creativity. Lapis Lazuli assists to confront and speak one’s truth and inspires confidence. It bonds relationships, aiding in expression of feelings and emotions.
Lapis Lazuli boosts the immune system, purifies blood, lowers blood pressure, cooling and soothing areas of inflammation. It alleviates insomnia and vertigo, and overcomes depression. Lapis Lazuli benefits the respiratory and nervous systems and the throat, vocal cords, and thyroid, cleanses organs, bone marrow and thymus.(charmsoflight.com)
