Made from a combination of minerals, including lazurite, calcite and pyrite, lapis lazuli is said to have been in existence since the birth of time. It is known to have been highly valued by the ancient Egyptians, as beautiful amulets and jewelry made from lapis lazuli stones were discovered in the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh, King Tutankhamen. It's deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth.
A stone of protection, lapis lazuli quickly releases stress, bringing deep peace. Encourages self-awareness, allows self-expression and reveals inner truth, providing qualities of honesty and compassion. Stimulates objectivity, clarity and encourages creativity.

Rainbow quartz is a natural quartz that has been heat-infused with titanium, resulting in a full spectrum of colors, generating rainbows and rich hues. Because the brilliant colors are produced by blending natural substances with a natural affinity, the metaphysical properties are enhanced rather than destroyed. An excellent stone for creativity, both removing blockages to creativity and enhancing creative powers. An intensely visual stone, promotes clairvoyance and all forms of "seeing."
