Lapis Lazuli

The Wisdom Stone

Lapis lazuli is a deep balancer, and works especially well with the brow and throat areas. It can remove deep levels of stress and trauma from the system, although some discomfort during the clearing process may be experienced. Lapis brings the spiritual qualities of deep silence and perspective that can be unnerving to those unfamiliar with these sensations. It is in this space, however, that profound intuition and inspiration can arise.

Energy: truthful, serious

Colours: deep blue, often with flecks of pyrite or mottled with white calcite

Uses: Lapis lazuli is an excellent stone for psychic development, divination, protection, self-knowledge, wisdom, creativity, magical power, prosperity, doubling out, which is being in the physical world and the "other" world at the same time, shielding and shapeshifting. Lapis Lazuli is a thought amplifier; it expands awareness and is propitious for personal empowerment. Lapis Lazuli boosts energy and the immune system; it is helpful for respiratory or nervous disorders.

Lapis Lazuli Detecting Fakes

Being exquisite and magical has its price.  Lapis Lazuli has become one of the most faked gemstones in the world.  It’s not easy to tell the difference between fake lapis and the real gemstone.  Each day the imitations are becoming better.

Imitation Lapis Lazuli is very common.  In more recent times large volumes of synthetically produced lapis have flooded the market place.  The imitation techniques are getting better each day.  Some of it is such a good quality that it is hard to tell apart from the real thing.

Many cheap minerals and gemstones can be dyed to imitate lapis.  Poor quality jasper, white howlite, spinel, sodalite or calcite can be used for this purpose.

How to Detect Fake and Real Lapis Lazuli

The best way to detect fake lapis is by only looking at it.  Although you probably better be an expert because the imitations are so good that you can be easily fooled.

Primary Test

Magnification will reveal a totally unnatural appearance to this material.  Here is where you’ll see the perfect golden specks patterns the fakes have.  The flat blue and the white streaks when scratched will also be present.

Lapis has that intense deep dark blue (ultramarine) color.  It is like looking into a well of water.  The fake looks flat dark blue.  Only the very best top quality lapis is a uniform blue color with virtually no fool’s gold.  This lapis is incredibly rare deeply sought after and costs a fortune.  This is the type of lapis you only see set into the finest 18k or 22k gold settings.
