How to purify lapis lazuli ?
To purify your lapis lazuli and free it from this accumulated energy, immerse it in a large bowl of water and let it soak overnight. Simple tap water is fine, otherwise use distilled water. Make sure the container is made of a natural material, preferably glass, and not plastic. Be careful never to use salt or salt water. This will damage the stone.
