Mined for its deep blue appearance and as a semiprecious stone, the Lapis Lazuli has been celebrated throughout time as one of the most unique and interesting forms of jewelry. Its name comes from the Latin word Lapis which means stone and lazuli which is known as an Arabic root of the word for blue.
Lapis Lazuli is usually found in a crystalline form, although it's also polished into slabs and settings for jewelry.
Once ground into a fine dust and used as ultramarine, Lapis Lazuli has been used since the early days of the Renaissance by many sculpters and painters alike. It's also been used as a dye once ground up for use in clothing and one of the finest pigments during this time period.
Found in northern Afghanistan, the Lapis Lazuli stone can be found throughout history in many different forms and uses. Although its primary use in history is one of the deepest and bluest pigments known to man, it's also been polished and used as a centerpiece to necklaces, bracelets and more.
The Lapis Lazuli looks excellent polished and makes for a wonderful addition in gem form or in any decorative use. It looks great in art or carvings, boxes and hair pieces and can also be used in large jewelry settings for its deep blue color and rich gemstone like nature.
