Raw Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli (sometimes referred to as Lapis) is an ancient stone surrounded by myth and legend. It has been sought after and beloved for millennia for its stunning blue color and for its connection to the heavens above.

This is a stone of self mastery and protection. It guards you from harm by clearing negative energies and EMF radiation in your energy field, as well as cleansing your aura. Lapis Lazuli also balances forces around you so you can walk safely through a situation. Use it to live freely and express your inner truths without worry.

Lapis is also a stone of universal truth and initiation. It is very effective with helping those who have difficulties with talking too much or effectively communicating their thoughts. Lapis is also known for helping to release stress when it comes to speaking out. Those who work in journalism, psychology, and executive positions should seek out Lapis, as it helps with wisdom, mental clarity, and good judgment. 

This stone has always been representative of royalty. The sarcophagi of Egyptian pharaohs, including King Tut, were decorated with Lapis Lazuli and other gemstones. In recent times, Lapis has become even more hard to find, which has only heightened its value.

Historical Folklore

Geology

Lapis Lazuli is a metamorphic rock that contains high levels of the mineral lazurite, which creates the spectacular blue color it is known for.  Some specimens may also contain pyrite, calcite, and other minor minerals. Most Lapis Lazuli is mined in Afghanistan, though it is also found in other Middle Eastern and Asian countries.

We have reopened our physical store in Geneva, Illinois. As per state mandates, there are restrictions; click to read.

We are so happy to once again be open to guests at our store. Our hours have been shortened, to allow for a daily evening cleaning:

Hours: M-Sat 10am -5pm, Sun 11am – 5pm

While we don’t require a coat and tie, or even shoes :) – we do require a face mask.

To comply with social distancing mandates, we must limit guests to 4 at a time inside the store. If we are full we will ask you to sign up on our wait list and wait outside. We are asking that everyone limit their shopping time to 30 minutes so that more people have a chance to get that special stone that they need!

You can call to reserve a time slot. However, if you are late, we may need to assign your slot to a waiting guest, and you will go to the end of the list. Our phone: 630-208-6001

We are still providing prepaid order pickup at our door for orders placed the day before.

Our staff will be doing everything we can to keep our store safe and clean. We will be cleaning throughout the day and spend an hour every day after close disinfecting using various methods. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We so look forward to seeing all our friends once again!
