The Élyane Earrings
Vintage Silver with Lapis Lazuli
Handmade in Istanbul, Turkey
Associated with the Third Eye Chakra, the meaning of the lapis lazuli can be traced back to ancient Egypt where royalty believed in its power to open itself out to the spirit world and the infinite possibilities of the imagination. It brings awareness of the soul and purpose in life. If you are drawn to the cool and soothing colors of this vibrant stone, it could be a sign that you need help getting out of a spiritual funk. By meditating with the lapis lazuli crystal, a water element stone, you will be able to channel the soothing vibrations of its deep blue color which inspires images of the ocean, the sky, and the heavens. When it comes to finding your happy place, these life-giving elements calm the mind and open the doors to higher consciousness. In short, the Lapis Lazuli allows you to keep your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds.
The reason why you need to pay special attention to jewelry with Lapis Lazuli is because of its nature. It is considered a soft gem. Moreover, it is a porous rock, which is why soaking it in water will ruin it. The best option for storage is to wrap it in a cloth to protect the stone from friction, scratching, and other means of wear and tear.
