Lapis Lazuli Jumbo Tumbles | Courage
Lapis lazuli has been mined for centuries from a locality still in use today in the Kokcha River Valley, Afghanistan. First mined 6000 years ago, the rock was transported to Egypt and present day Iraq and later to Europe where it was used in jewelery and for ornamental stone. Europeans even ground down the rock into an expensive powdered pigment for paints called "ultramarine". Although no longer the only source of lapis, Afghanistan still produces the finest quality material.
Lapis lazuli eases pain, especially migraines. It benefits the respiratory and nervous systems. It heals the throat, larynx and thyroid. Lapis lazuli cleans organs, bone marrow, thymus and the immune system. It overcomes hearing loss, purifies blood, insomnia, vertigo and lowers blood pressure.
Lapis Lazuli helps to identify the karmic roots of disease. It can be particularly helpful in identifying habitual thought patterns and emotions sabotaging the healing process.
