Notable: Lazurite is distinguished from sodalite by its deeper color and fine grain and much higher price tag. It is also softer and lighter in weight than lazulite a stone that it is not related to, contrary to popular belief. Though the deep blue lazurite stone is sought out more often, those stones with less blue in them like sodalite will still be just as effective for their metaphysical use. The intense blue color is due to the presence of the trisuphur radical anion within the crystal.

Lapis Lazuli was a favorite stone of the ancient Egyptians who believed it was a stone for only those of royal blood. In the past Lazurite has been burned and ground to form the pigment ultramarine. There are two trains of thought on where the name for Lapis Lazuli's name comes from: The first is that it was derived from the English word azure meaning bright blue color, signifying the actual color of the stone. The other thought is that the name is from the Arabic [lazaward], "heaven," which was also applied to sky-blue Lapis lazuli.

While Lapis is considered to be durable it is also fairly soft at 5-6 on the Mohs scale. With some care Lapis can last for many years. Use warm soapy water and rinse well, then either air dry or dry with a soft cloth. Do not soak Lapis and do not use harsh chemicals. If the Lapis you have is dyed be sure to test a small area of the stone before cleaning to make sure the stone's coloring is stable. Remove Lapis jewelry when you shower, bathe, clean or go to the beach to prevent scratching and dulling of the stone. Store Lapis by itself to prevent scratching, dulling and fractures since it is fairly soft. Wrap with a soft cloth or place in a fabric lined jewelry box to protect them well.

 Lapis lazuli should be charged outdoors on a clear night when the stars are bright.
