Rondelles

Along with malachite, Lapis Lazuli is one of the first treasured stones of human kind, and has been mined for over 7,000 years. Its name stems from the Latin word "lapis" meaning stone and from the Arabic word "azula" meaning blue. This treasured blue stone can be found throughout many ancient civilizations. Before a synthetic substitute was created, it was often ground and used as a pigment, making blue paint, "Ultramarine" the most expensive and valuable paint available. For this reason, blue paint was most often reserved for royalty and holy figures such as the Madonna. Much of the worlds Lapis Lazuli is mined from mountains in northern Afghanistan.

Description: (Russian Serpentine AKA Russian Jade or Lizardite) Serpentine and Lizardite are both apt names for this stone due to the reptilian appearance of its surface. More translucent examples of serpentine are very often marketed as a faux jade, a few common names for serpentine "jade" are new jade, yellow jade and Afghan jade. Serpentine is a very good looking and versatile stone all on its own and has no need to be marketed as anything other than serpentine. Serpentine is a waxy silicate of magnesium, and is less dense than the true jade it is often substituted for.
