The semi precious stone, Lapis lazuli, is well known for its intense blue color. In Ancient Egypt Lapis was celebrated as being The Wisdom Stone and can be seen in paintings and scrolls adorning the Pharaohs.
"The Crystal Bible, A Definitive Guide to Crystals", by Judy Hall claims the following....
"Attributes Lapis Lazuli stimulates enlightenment and enhances dream work and psychic abilities. ... It possesses enormous serenity and is the key to spiritual attainment." She adds, "Lapis Lazuli is a powerful thought amplifier. It stimulates the higher faculties of the mind, ringing objectivity and clarity."
Ironstone's Heritage Museum & Jewelry Shoppe makes no claims to the above. We are in love with this stone however and decided to make this our first of many Special Blog Sale pieces.

With the wider bail, this piece may be set on a large chain or neck collar. This piece is one of several designs custom made for Ironstone. These pieces sell for $450.
