Lapis-lazuli, from the Latin lapis, stone, and lazuli, azure, coming itself from Persian and Sanskrit, “King’s Portion”, as rare as it is precious, con- sidered as the stone of the holy and the spiritual, is famous for its splen- did midnight blue/navy blue colour sprinkled with golden specks, “sap- phire” of the Antiquity, evoking the starry sky, the kingdom of heaven, making it one of the richest stone in terms of legends and properties.
It is mainly made of Lazurite with some inclusions of white calcite, blue Sodalite and gold pyrite.
More than two thousand years BC, in Mesopotamia, the Sumerians, who called it “Sky Stone”, were importing it from Badakhshan (which is now between Afghanistan and Tajikistan) and were chiselling Lapis-lazuli tal- ismans giving divine magic powers and protecting against bad luck.
Its midnight blue colour evokes the celestial sphere, the eyes of the di- vine, and its myriads of pyrite stars, sanctuary for the sacred souls.
In ancient Egypt, Lapis-lazuli is sought after for the manufacture of make-up products, jewellery, ornaments, statuettes and amulets includ- ing the “eye of Horus” and the “heart scarab” ...
Despite its significant cost, it also allowed to generations of painters to obtain the famous navy blue pigment, whose name comes from its origin.
Symbol of the celestial forces, of luck, sign of inspiration and intuition, alchemists linked lapis-lazuli to the Air element, the Libra element, asso- ciated to the third eye chakra.
In mathematics, the number 12 is said to be a “sublime” number be- cause the number of its divisors and the sum of its divisors are both per- fect numbers.
This number always refers to resurgence, to creation, its symbolism is very important in holy scriptures. In astrology, the 12 zodiac signs, in astronomy, the 12 sectors, the 12 months of the year, the 12 hours... In tarot, the Hanged Man is indeed the arcane of resurgence and new crea- tion.

Symbolising protection and purification, rock crystal leads to the clarity of mind, soul and body.
A resinous substance venerated for tens of centuries and known as " the celestial fragrance of serenity", Frankincense carries prayers uttered by mortals towards the heavens.
