Lapis Lazuli is found in Afghanistan. The mines of the Badakshan region, near the Russian border, have been mined for 6000 years.
The majority of gemstones are valued by their color and none more so than Lapis Lazuli – if it is not blue it is not Lapis Lazuli, and the bluer the better! The ideal color is a vivid, even, dark blue color, perhaps with violet undertones. Lapis Lazuli nearly always has some blemishes or inclusions, usually white calcite or golden pyrite, and uniform colored gemstones with fewer inclusions are valued higher.
Pyrite can cause attractive patterns of golden flecks in a deep blue background and if it is not too dense can enhance the appearance and increase the price. White streaks of calcite are quite common and not so attractive so this will lower the value.
Meaning: Lapis Lazuli is a lucky gemstone and that means lucky in love, with money and with your job, not only in gaining new love, wealth or employment but in enhancing current love and faithfulness, keeping your finances in order and advancing your present career. 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 is known to also boost the immune system, purifies blood, lowers blood pressure, cooling and soothing areas of inflammation. It alleviates insomnia and vertigo, and overcomes depression.
