Embracing Serenity: The Powers of Crystal and Lapis Lazuli

What’s the oldest things you’re wearing today?

My necklace

As we go about our daily lives, there are often certain items that take on a special significance, becoming touchstones that connect us to the world and to our own inner tranquility. For me, one such artifact is a unique necklace, a symbol of my life’s journey and a source of inner calm. This isn’t just any ordinary piece of jewelry, but a necklace I created myself, combining a crystal from Thailand and a piece of lapis lazuli from Peru.


I found the crystal during my first stop on a round-the-world trip, a sojourn to the vibrant markets of Thailand. The way the light refracted through it caught my eye, reflecting a resilience that mirrored my own. Crystals are believed to possess various beneficial properties, ranging from promoting clarity of mind to enhancing personal energy and resilience.

In contrast, the lapis lazuli was a gift I received while exploring the rich cultural tapestry of Peru. This vibrant blue stone has long been valued for its association with wisdom and truth, known to facilitate clear communication and self-expression.


I connected these two stones using macramé, a form of textile-making using knotting rather than weaving or knitting. It’s a simple technique, but one that has provided a sturdy foundation for the union of these two treasured objects.


Whenever I wear this necklace, I find it instills a sense of tranquility within me, helping me maintain a composed state of mind regardless of the circumstances. It has become an essential part of me, a talisman I’ve worn for over 13 years now.


The benefits of the crystal and the lapis lazuli, combined with the personal significance they hold, bring me not only a sense of calm but also a profound connection with the wider world. They remind me of my travels, of the people I’ve met, and the invaluable experiences I’ve gained along the way.

Thank you for reading this story of my necklace, the symbol of my journey and my constant source of tranquility. It’s a testament to the power of personal artifacts and the impact that the natural world, through stones like crystal and lapis lazuli, can have on our lives.
