This is one of the master crystals that does so much so well. Great for throat, esophagus, larynx or upper bronchial inflammation - just hold it over the affected area. Helps your mind focus. Releases stress and anxiety. Autistic individuals find greater ease with reality by handling this crystal. Stimulates the lymphatic system, pituitary and thymus. Use for any issue concerning spleen, lungs, lymph, throat and thymus. Removes toxins from the body and even your refrigerator. Can be used to safely access and release repressed emotions, which is why it is considered an important tool for psychotherapists. Shy individuals feel more comfortable within themselves and around strangers. Helps one stay aligned with your Higher Self. Placing Lapis under a pyramid-shape keeps it energized.
Lapis is often mistaken for Sodalite. That is because Lapis is largely comprised of sodalite. The difference is that it also contains lazurite, calcite and pyrite.
Lapis needs to be exposed to midday sun for 20 minutes once a month. Either midday sun or a full moon for 20 minutes (or longer).
