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: Lapis lazuli is a semiprecious rock that has been treasured for its intense blue color since antiquity. Lapis adornments have been found in Neolithic burials dating up to 9,000 years ago! This treasured stone can also be found in ancient Egyptian burials, such as King Tut's burial mask. Lapis was being imported into Europe beginning in the Middle Ages, and was often ground up and used as the blue pigment in ultramarine, the finest and most valuable paint available at the time. Due to its the high cost of the pigment, ultramarine paint was normally reserved for paintings of royalty and holy figures.
