  • Stone of Lapis Lazuli

    Lapis Lazuli has maintained its reputation as a first-class jade material. The colour resonates dark blue, purple blue, sky blue and green blue. The pure blue is reminiscent of the ocean, the sky, the universe, and calmness. It is also one of the Seven Treasures of Buddhism; it is the body colour of the Medicine Buddha in Tibetan Buddhism and has the unique spirituality of natural crystal. “...the golden light is shining and the blue is gorgeous and pure, the emperor's domineering and quiet. His classic image is the elegant royal blue background with golden dots of stars”. Top grade lapis lazuli is dark blue and pure in colour with a fine texture, with no cracks, no white impurities (calcite), no pyrite and with a beautiful gold star. The natural lapis lazuli has a deep and solemn colour, the golden star is brilliant, and there are no bubbles in the substance, while one can quickly identify an artificial lapis lazuli (one smelted with glass mixed with copper powder and mica powder) because its colour is not as beautiful as natural lapis lazuli. Looking after your Lapis Lazuli Lapis Lazuli is composed of a mixture of various minerals. There are inevitably cracks and crevices in the crystals. Therefore one must be additionally careful when wearing it to avoid bumps or squeezing and prevent it coming into contact with water or high temperatures. Natural lapis lazuli has different shades of colour. This is a unique beauty. The beautiful colour may fade in high temperatures or exposed to the hot sun in high heat environments. There are two degaussing methods: 1) Mix fine Omori salt and mineral water into a cup or bowl, use a cloth and degauss the Lapis Lazuli daily for one month. 2) Use special large-grained degaussing salt; bury the lapis lazuli in the degaussing salt for three months at a time. Alternatively, on can degauss using sea chrysanthemums; put the lapis lazuli in the centre of sea chrysanthemums and the demagnetization can be completed within 24 hours. Note: Lapis lazuli is a granular aggregate composed of a variety of minerals, if soaked and washed with water, the dirt on the surface of the gem will penetrate into the interior, which will change the original brilliance of the lapis lazuli. The efficacy and role of lapis lazuli Its main function is to purify the mind. In ancient Greece and Rome, lapis lazuli was considered a symbol of wealthy. The colour blue is a colour of hope. It not only has a poetic element, but also is associated with "peace, auspiciousness and kindness“ and bring inspiration. Lapis Lazuli is believed to enhance spirituality, stabilize mentality, protect the body and ward off evil spirits. The lapis lazuli colour is the body colour of the Tibetan Buddhism herbalist, corresponding to the brow chakra of the human body. Many claim that it helps to treat insomnia, dizziness, headache and lower blood pressure, relieve emotions, strain eyesight, coordinate the throat chakra (which can improve trachea, throat and respiratory tract diseases). Associated with recognising mental stress and rebounding the energy of the stress back to its original place, stimulating personal strength and spirit, it is also believed to improve communication and expression skills, eliminate anger and conflict and help people heal their spiritual wounds. It is a stone of friendship. The bracelet or necklace made of lapis lazuli is suitable for both women or men; as an exquisite necklace, bracelet, brooch, ring, earrings or other jewel.

    The Five Elements are the essence for supporting human life. Each element is attributed to different energies or states of change. If any element is impure or out of balance with another element, then it is believed that it can corrected so as to restore balance and health, or to unfold inner powers and abilities contained in each of the elements. Some elements are "enemies" and block the expression of the other; Fire and Water “destroy“ each other if they get the chance.
