Lapis Lazuli has been sought after since the dawn of man. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision.
In ancient times, Lapis Lazuli was highly regarded because of its beautiful color and the valuable ultramarine dye derived from it. Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue." It is formed by multiple minerals and is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks. Lapis Lazuli was among the most highly prized tribute paid to Egypt. King Tutankhamen’s sarcophagus was inlaid with Lapis, and it was often used in jewelry and ground into powder for dyes, eye shadow and medicinal elixirs. The gold flecks were like stars in the Egyptians’ night sky and by meditating on these colors they felt supernatural forces would transform their lives.
