Chakra: Third eye, Throat
Lapis Lazuli is classified as a rock, not a crystal or mineral. Lapis is an aggregate of multiple minerals including calclite, lazurite, sodalite, pyrite, mica, hauyenite and more. Known for its intense blue, lapis was utilised during the renaissance period to create pigments for paints and dyes.
A porous mineral, lapis is quite often dyed to enhance its colour. All of our lapis is sold with a certificate of authenticity to prove its natural origins.
Although crystals have survived hundreds of thousands to millions of years (wow) in our earth they are still delicate and must be treated with TLC.
Lapis has a relatively low hardness so be careful not to keep it inside a bag with other harder/sharp crystals. Lapis contains pyrite and is also porous, so please keep dry and away from moisture as it may darken and lose its shine.
Treat it with care.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
