There are few gemstones with as long and romantic a history as Lapis Lazuli.!

Though found in several locations around the world, the finest lapis comes from Badakhshan Province of Northern Afghanistan, where it has been mined continuously for over 6,000 years.

It was used for sacred amulets in ancient Egypt and by the Assyrians and Babylonians for cylinder seals. Historians believe that Cleopatra used powdered lapis for eye shadow. The ancient royal Sumerian tombs of Ur, located near the Euphrates River in Lower Iraq, contained more than 6,000 beautifully executed lapis lazuli statuettes of birds, deer and rodents as well as dishes, beads and cylinder seals.  How Amazing They Must Look!!?

Powdered lapis was also the source for the blue pigment known as ultramarine, used by painters from the Medieval period through the Renaissance. The synthetic version of ultramarine was discovered early in the 19th century and the use of expensive lapis for pigments quickly declined.

. Calcite is calcium carbonate, is the white mineral responsible for the white streaks in many specimens of lapis. Pyrite is iron sulfide, which is white-gold in color and lends lapis its distinctive glitter.  With Pieces Showing ONLY A STRONG BLUE , Without The White Streaks of the Calcite Or Pyrite , SUCH AS  ………..
