Lapis was used to entomb and decorate the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. It still carries the vibration of the inner King or Queen that lies buried in each of us. Lapis activates the psychic centers at the third eye, allowing one to develop enhanced intuition and access to spiritual guidance. It is a stone of visionary awareness, bringing new information to the mind in images rather than words. It enhances intellectual ability, making one a better learner and teacher. Above all, Lapis is a stone of self-knowledge and reflection. It enables one to identify one’s gifts and abilities, as well as one’s limitations and opportunities for growth.
