A lapis lazuli is a mystical stone, from the TV Show The Vampire Diaries that is enchanted by witches, to allow vampires to walk freely in the sunlight. Lapis lazuli is supposed to be a stone with mystical powers that were given to a goddess in the past, who died above a lapis lazuli rock long time ago, and transfer this way her power to the stone. Since that moment, the stone has nature´s strength in itself. Throughout the series, female vampires often wear amulets, rings or bracelets that possess lapis lazuli stones, as oppose to male vampires, who often only wear rings. Though somewhat common in the series, very few humans know of its existence and function, which gives vampires the advantage of walking in the sun, avoiding suspicion from most humans who still believe vampires can only walk at night.
