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: You can almost taste the rainbow in a strand of these vibrant candy colored gemstones (please do not taste the beads). Tourmaline comes in a wide variety of bold colors ranging from bubblegum pinks, lemony yellows, earthy browns and emerald greens. Individual tourmaline crystals rarely come in one solid color, most show various shades of a color or even entirely different colors. This stone possesses the interesting trait of becoming electrically charged when heated or rubbed. It will attract dust and hairs. The Dutch once used this heated stone to clean their tobacco pipes, and called the stone "ashentrekker" (ash puller). This trait means that tourmaline requires gentle soap and water cleaning more often than most gemstones. Do not use an ultrasonic cleaner for this gemstone.
