My new lapis lazuli pendant. It's rather large, gorgeous color.
Love this powerful stone but I've never worn it much.

Got to love Lapis though, it's great. I have a small obelisk that I use as a wand during ritual. When I'm not using it for ritual, I use it to stimulate the third eye.

My lapis lazuli: 008.JPG

He's got a lot of yellow on him, but he's rather effective when I need him.

This is my pendant. I have worn it every day since February, and I love it. It's a sacred stone to me, and the amethyst set at the top is my favorite stone. ^_^

First beaded necklace I ever designed/threaded was entirely lapis lazuli... I have never had any trouble with it even as a beginner, possibly as a Taurean and with a bit of an Isis-connection?

Today I bought a necklace/earrings/bracelet set (bracelet is too big so went to sis) of circular amber and lapis beads. Sis didn't like it on me at first - I do NOT look good in yellow - but it felt amazing when I tried it on, and really, who am I to argue with stones? It feels powerful, and I like that I can connect with Isis and Freyja at the same time.

I was given a beautiful large lapis ring for my 40th last year by a good friend... blue is not a colour I do a lot with, for some reason - and it the first lapis I have worn - no problems with it (maybe it is my Egyptian connections, lol!), and whenever I wear it, someone always seems to comment on it... It is lovely... Sorita D'Este also claims associations with Hekate, and in my mind, it has always been a wealth stone.

I have a lot of respect or Lapis as it it the stone of the healers, also the stone of the Healing Buddha, who holds his infinite healing energy in a lapis bowl

Interestingly, now looking at this pic of the pendant, I actually dont think it is lapis at all, looks more like a sodalite to me.
