 Lapis Lazuli is a semi-precious stone characterized by its vibrant, deep-blue color. Structurally, Lapis Lazuli is composed of the minerals Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite. It has been appreciated since ancient times, with some Lapis Lazuli mines in Afghanistan dating back to the 7th millennium (7000) B.C. While the majority of the world’s Lapis Lazuli traces its origins to Afghanistan, Lapis Lazuli beads and other Lapis Lazuli Neolithic remnants have been found as far away from Afghanistan as Mauritania. Even the Ceremonial funeral mask of world-renowned ancient Egyptian pharaoh, King Tutankhamun (otherwise known as “King Tut”), was adorned with Lapis Lazuli. Metaphysically, Lapis Lazuli is said to stimulate wisdom and good judgement. In terms of its healing properties, Lapis Lazuli has been used to treat conditions of the throat and endocrine system. Our Lapis Lazuli is native to Afghanistan.

Ammonites are the ancient equivalent to the modern-day chambered Nautilus. These seafaring squids built a chambered shell in which they would pump air into the empty chambers and float at different levels of the ocean in search of food. The animals that lived in these shells looked like a squid or an octopus with tentacles for grasping food or moving around the ocean floor. The word ammonite is derived from the name of the Greek god Ammon that appeared with ram horns on its head. Many Fengh Shui masters believe ammonites have absorbed the knowledge of the universe, storing that energy in the spirals of the shell and radiating it out, to the benefit of anyone near it. Ammonites lived approximately 400 million years ago. Our ammonites come from Morocco, Madagascar and Germany.
