The most important mineral component of lapis is lazurite. A number of other minerals may be contained within the stone such as calcite, pyrite and sodalite. Ground lapis was the secret of the blue in ultramarine, the pigment which painters used to paint the sea and the sky until the nineteenth century. Used by some as a protective stone, it is said to be grounding with a strong connection to the earth and spirits of nature.
As a healing stone it is said to be helpful in ridding nightmares. Also helpful to calm an overworked and over stressed mind. It is thought to dispel negativity and create a peaceful environment.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel. It refers to the energy centers found in the body. Most Eastern traditions describe seven major Chakras positioned along the midline of the body from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.
