Lapis Lazuli

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: Jet is one of only five organic (once living) gemstones recognized by the International Commission of Colored Gemstone (CIBJO), the other four are Ammolite, Amber, Pearl and Coral. Jet is a form of lignite coal, which is the result of high pressure decomposition of wood from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. It is similar in weight, warmth and feel to Amber, and was in fact, once believed to be Black Amber. Jet jewelry has been found dating as far back as 17,000 BC. It was popular in Roman times, in the Victorian era, as well as in the 1920's. Jet is attributed numerous healing and protective properties including protection from the evil eye and strengthening psychic awareness through the first chakra. Jet becomes electronically charged when rubbed against silk or wool, and smells of coal when touched with a burning hot needle.
