Here is Some Beliefs About Lapis Lazuli And Turquoise
Lapis Lazuli is a gemstone that has existed and been valued since the beginning of time. The ancient Egyptians used it in scarabs, beads, pendants and other lapis lazuli jewelry as far back as 3100 B.C. The golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen was heavily decorated with lapis lazuli, and lapis lazuli jewelry was used as burial ornaments for other Egyptian kings and queens. Buddhist beliefs also utilize lapis lazuli stone jewelry and gemstones as tools to help bring inner peace and freedom from negative thoughts.
The use of Turquoise dates back to ancient times. In the ancient tombs of Egypt, queens have been found decked from head to toe in turquoise jewelry. It was considered the “Stone of Life and Protection,” Egyptians believing that burying their royalty in turquoise jewelry would keep their soul alive and protected after they left their body and continued to the after life. Native Americans have also long worn turquoise bracelets and jewelry as a powerful healer and protector. Turquoise is also considered sacred in many Chinese cultures
