Description

Large, smooth lapis set in an ornate 14k gold setting. Ancient Egyptians would place lapis on various parts of a deceased person's body as an offering to guarantee their safe passage into the afterlife. Before death, they believed lapis capable of curing demonic possession and, believing that the soul was housed in the brain, they would pulverize the deep blue stone, mix it with gold, and place the poultice on the top of the head to draw out the demons as it dried. In cases of extreme possession, a hole was drilled into the head and the mixture was poured inside (and we would venture to guess that the games came full circle at that point and a safe passage into the afterlife was then required).
