The Lapis Lazuli, also called the Heavenly Stone, is the talisman of the Mere tribe and is held in the third medallion on the Belt of Deltora.

History Edit

The Lapis Lazuli was created when the Land of Dragons and the land of Pirra collided with one another. It was gifted to the Mere tribe and became their talisman. It was said to have a special connection to the Opal, the gem of the Plains tribe.[2]

The Time of Adin Edit

The Lapis Lazuli was the third gem to be added to the Belt of Deltora. It was given to Adin after he brought back the head of a Sand Beast to the Mere tribe with the aid of a Lapis Lazuli dragon.[2]

The Forests of Silence Edit

When Deltora fell under the reign of the Shadow Lord, the Lapis Lazuli was stripped from the Belt of Deltora and placed within the Shifting Sands, where it became part of the Hive.[3]

The Shifting Sands Edit

Sixteen years after it was added to the Hive, the Lapis Lazuli was recovered by Lief, Barda, and Jasmine. Lief pried it from the Hive's cone of treasure and replaced it with a wooden bird Jasmine won in Rithmere. He placed it in the fourth medallion on the Belt of Deltora and it gave the companions safe passage out of the Sands.[3]

The Valley of the Lost Edit

The power of the Lapis Lazuli saved Lief from the Guardian by causing his pets to berserk and attack him.[citation needed]

Shadowgate Edit

The Lapis Lazuli woke Fortuna from her slumber and gained more power once the dragon had been awakened.[4]

Isle of the Dead Edit

Even though Lief had the Lapis Lazuli to aid his luck, he still did not trust that he could win any of Laughing Jack's fraudulent games on the gambling ship The Lady Luck.[5]

Power Edit

The Lapis Lazuli, the heavenly stone, is the symbol of good fortune, brings good luck, and has an affiliation with the Opal.[1]

Anime Edit

Frr

The Lapis Lazuli in the anime.

The Lapis Lazuli is given a new power in the anime. Whenever a star shines in the night sky, it banishes all manner of spells. This was used against the sorceress Thaegan during her second attempt to kill the companions.

Trivia Edit

  • Before the unification of Deltora, the Lapis Lazuli was kept within a special star-shaped pendant, which was worn by the leader of the Mere at all times.[1]
