I love the blue of Lapis and acquired this stone to assist in working with my Throat Chakra. Lapis Lazuli is associated with royalty, including gods, and power. It is a symbol of wisdom and truth.
This is a stone for anyone who needs good judgement or is searching for the truth. Not just in the legal field, but journalists, historians, and scientists. It also promotes harmony in relationships.
I seem to be collecting stones that balance the important and unimportant, relieving stress. Lapis also will protect from psychic attacks, blocking them and returning the energy back to the sender.
Lapis honors Hera, whose eyes were Lapis blue, as well as Athena in her protective and wisdome aspects. It is also used to honor Danu and Aphrodite.
