Obsidian, Coral, and Smoky Quartz are among the best crystal combinations for Lapis Lazuli. Obsidian is best to add an element of shadow work to the interpersonal intelligence Lapis Lazuli encourages you to develop. They also complement each other quite well as protective stones.
The Inner Child plays a part when it comes to the way you present yourself to others.
Adding Coral to your work with Lapis Lazuli will help you acknowledge and eventually heal said Inner Child.
Finally, Smoky Quartz drives you to recognize that the negativity you perceive in others exists in you. You can purge yourself of it by pairing Lapis Lazuli with it.
Lapis Lazuli has two main functions. One is protective and helps to clear out your aura.
It specifically protects you against energetic attacks from living (and some disembodied) people, whether the attacks are conscious or not.
It’s especially effective to shield yourself from envy (malocchio is an example) and to clear your auric field of it if it has already entered.
Its other function has to do with increasing your interpersonal intelligence. It drives you to see how you perceive yourself, how you want to be perceived, and how others perceive you.
Eventually, it can also give you the wisdom to build the reputation you want. Due to its crystalline structure, this crystal can err too much on the logical side at times.

1. Rose Quartz and Lapis Lazuli Combination
This combination is especially effective and necessary for people who are clueless about how other people perceive them.
It also works when delusion is at play and someone doesn’t want to see some of the truths behind this.
If this is you, you most definitely need the support of Rose Quartz so as not to lose yourself in the opinions of others.
With this combination, you will be able to stand tall in how you want to be perceived and see your own value first and foremost.
Plus, both crystals have links to beauty, sensuality, and magnetism.
2. Obsidian and Lapis Lazuli Combination
Some people are really deluded when it comes to sobering up to what others think of them and how they perceive them.
They may need bigger guns than Lapis Lazuli to understand why they fail to portray the image they want to portray and have the reputation they want.
When Lapis is paired with Obsidian, the wearer is also encouraged to do some shadow work to accept the reality they evade themselves from.
Plus, Obsidian adds to the protective energy against attacks by other people (conscious or subconscious attacks), especially those that have to do with envy, like malocchio.
3. Sapphire and Lapis Lazuli Combination
Sapphire adds a fair amount of calm while also being very Solar in energy.
The person who uses this combination will learn to behave like an adult, advocating for themselves while also being mindful of the needs of others.
All of this is done from a very logical framework.
Despite being blue in color, Lapis Lazuli is more similar in vibration to the Third Eye Chakra than the Throat Chakra, which is associated with the color blue.
Pairing Lapis with a Throat Chakra crystal, especially one with a high vibration like Sapphire, helps to translate your insights into a language you can understand.
The Throat Chakra also has ties with authenticity.
Since Lapis Lazuli deals with how we want to be perceived, it’s a good idea to add something that encourages you to be authentic to the mix.
4. Coral and Lapis Lazuli Combination
The Inner Child comes into play when it comes to how we form all sorts of relationships and bonds with others.
It also has a huge role in how we present ourselves. A healed Inner Child will help you be joyful and compassionate in your demeanor.
A wounded Inner Child will manifest as a public persona that needs to be the center of attention at all times and resents those that get to have the spotlight.
Coral is fossilized Calcite but comes from the water. Calcite has to do with the logical mind, but the element of water is also present.
Water is all about the emotional, inner world. This is a great stone for people who have a hard time translating emotions into logical statements.
These are the same people that are drawn to Lapis Lazuli, which also vibrates on the same plane as the part of your aura that has to do with your mind.
After all, the crystalline structure of one of its components has the shape of a dodecahedron, a shape which in Divine Geometry symbolizes a meeting between mind and spirit.
5. Amethyst and Lapis Lazuli Combination
Here, the protective properties of both crystals come to the forefront.
Lapis Lazuli takes care of envious energy and negativity that comes from the outside (especially the living people that interact with us).
Amethyst takes a more general approach and simply transforms and transmutes. They are best worn as jewelry, as a protective talisman of sorts.
6. Smoky Quartz and Lapis Lazuli Combination
In this combination, the protective qualities of Lapis Lazuli are completed by an internal purge of the negativity that’s inside of you.
“As above, so below”: Whenever we interact with envy and negative thoughts from others, it’s very likely we have a bit of our own negativity to deal with.
Smoky Quartz will incite a purge of all negativity held inside you while Lapis Lazuli protects you from the envy of others and increases your interpersonal intelligence.
7. Honey Calcite and Lapis Lazuli Combination
Lapis Lazuli acts on the Third Eye chakra, which forms a direct bridge with the Solar Plexus.
Honey Calcite works with the Solar Plexus chakra from the logical mind.
It will help you remove any obstacles in your way to empowerment and self-confidence (and Lapis will help you identify them).
In addition, this combination is versatile enough that it can help you study vast amounts of information and retain all of it.
8. Fire Opal and Lapis Lazuli Combination
With this combination, the properties of Lapis Lazuli related to interpersonal intelligence are focused on one’s own roles of leadership and authority.
Fire Opal also brings with it the welcome addition of the element of Water as well as Fire.
As we have already said, Lapis Lazuli is a logical stone because of its crystalline structure.
Water and Fire are subjective elements that are needed to complete the picture.
Water has to do with intuition, the inner world, emotions, and compassion. Fire has to do with passion, drive, and creativity.
Fire Opal paired with Lapis Lazuli will help you see what kind of leader you are – where you fail and where you shine, and how your subordinates perceive you.
Because the element of water is present in this combination, it will help you be compassionate and know how to nurture your subordinates best.
The element of fire will give you a spark of willpower and passion if that’s what’s missing to make your leadership style more effective.
9. Rhodochrosite and Lapis Lazuli Combination
Some people fail to portray their desired persona because they lack diplomacy.
Rhodochrosite will help you perfect your diplomatic skills if that’s what you need to do.
You’ll be able to not only tolerate people that think differently from you but also consider what they may think of your actions and words.
Rhodochrosite will lead you to the idea that, even if you may not share the same ideas, you and that person have something in common – even if it’s just the human experience.
Rhodochrosite also acts on the Heart Chakra.
Adding Lapis Lazuli to your work with Rhodochrosite will give you more clarity when it comes to answering questions that have to do with whether you’re open to love, or whether you trust the people in your life that have already proven to be trustworthy.
How to use crystal combinations for Lapis Lazuli
Make Jewelry out of them
Lapis Lazuli is best worn and displayed proudly. Not only is it a natural talisman against malocchio, but it’s a beautiful stone to boot.
Due to the logical nature of Lapis Lazuli, the best metal pairing for it is sterling silver, which brings some Lunar energy that the crystal needs.
However, if the crystal combination of your sort contains a more emotional crystal, like Fire Opal and Lapis Lazuli or Rhodochrosite and Lapis Lazuli, you may opt for gold – especially Rose Gold.
Cleanse the jewelry piece by leaving it inside a ceramic, porcelain, or glass bowl full of raw rice.
Bury it inside the rice. It’s important that the rice is raw and not cooked because the moisture of cooked rice can damage the piece over time.
Don’t eat this rice, though you may reuse it for around a week to cleanse either this piece or other pieces or crystals. Once you’re done with it, compost it.
It’s also important to charge your piece.
You can either leave it by moonlight (make sure it doesn’t get mixed with sunlight, as it may damage the piece), especially during the Full Moon, or bury it in your garden for a couple of days.
After that, you can wipe out the dirt on the piece with a slightly damp cloth. Make sure you don’t bury it in a place that was once used to bury people or animals.
Due to its energetic properties, this jewelry piece is best used for the daytime.
When you’re not using it, wrap it in silk to keep it insulated energetically and store in a dry, cool place.
Place on top of your makeup or skincare products
Lapis Lazuli is tied to both beauty and the way others perceive you. The way you look after your appearance plays a role in this.
Place the crystal pair on top of your makeup or skincare products.
Placing them on top of an outfit you plan to wear for a special occasion also works.
The objects will become infused with the energy of the crystals.
Include in journaling or Divination
Whether you simply sit down to doodle and journal or you do some serious shadow work or draw some cards or runes to understand yourself better.
Make sure you keep these crystals close to you while you do so.
Some unexpected but incredibly valuable insights will surely come up.
Keep close to the mirrors in your household
You must do this with care, as mirrors can become energetic portals – swinging doors of sorts for just about anyone from other planes to come through.
Seal them energetically first, and make sure the crystals you do keep around are always cleansed and charged.
As Lapis Lazuli works on your self-perception and the way others perceive you, keeping the combinations that include it close to the mirror you look at while you get ready can be useful.
Whether you’re interested in the properties of Lapis Lazuli that have to do with protection, the properties that have to do with increasing your interpersonal intelligence, or both, crystal pairings can help you get the most out of this stone.
The crystal can be too logical at times, so it’s a great idea to pair it with crystals that bring an element of emotion to the table.
