Lapis lazuli is known all over the world as a stone promoting love and friendship, happiness, and playfulness, which helps to fulfil unexpected plans and ideas. In addition, it rejoins people in love and friendship, and helps in expressing thoughts and emotions.

Lapis lazuli favours intellectual development, encourages to take on a mission in life, reveals inner truth, self-awareness and self-expression, gives peace of mind and balance, and energises consciousness. When one is within its sphere of influence, it is easier to understand and solve problems that have been pushed into the subconscious; it creates feelings of unity and preserves decisiveness.
