Magical uses: Chrysocolla was once held in the hand to drive off unreasonable fear and illusions. It is a stone of peace and soothes the emotions.
When worn, the stone grants the power of discretion and increased wisdom.
Chrysocolla, a green stone, is also worn or used in spells to attract love.
A simple rite using this stone: At your stone alter, place a piece of chrysocolla in your hand. Visualize it attracting a love to you. Place the stone in a small red or pink cup half filled with water. In this, place three red roses. Add fresh roses to the water as the others fade. Love will come into your life.

All of my season dragon designs together :D The main reason for doing these in the first place was because I was puddling around with the idea of my headworld dragons “original” religion/spirituality being based around the cycle of the seasons, and each of the dragon’s different elements being grouped under one of these. So a dragon with a fire element would be ‘a child of summer.’ Theres some overlap with some elements being tied to more than one season, so those dragons could pick the title they feel closest to.
Only got the bare bones worked out, but thats the gist of it.
The grass seems to be curling around your ankles as you approach. You feel refreshed. A lot of the detail in the stone carving is obscured by leaves. There a cracks in the stone where vines have grown and taken hold.
Lapis Lazuli was among the most highly prized tribute paid to Egypt, obtained from the oldest mines in the world, worked from around 4000 B.C. and still in use today. Referenced in the Old Testament as sapphire (unknown in that part of the ancient world), Lapis Lazuli is most likely the fifth stone in the original breastplate of the High Priest, as well as those of later times.
Lapis is an excellent stone for executives, journalists, and psychologists, stimulating wisdom and good judgment in the practical world. It aids intellectual analysis in archaeologists and historians, problem solving for lawyers, and creates new ideas for inventors and writers.
Lapis Lazuli is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning. It is excellent for enhancing memory.
A stone of truth, Lapis encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. Wear it for all forms of deep communication. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships.
Wear it, or add it to your charm bags, or arrange them within your home, altar, and sacred space to help bring these qualities to yourself. In crystal healing, Lapis is also believed to help align your energies.
