LAPIS LAZULI: derives its name from the Latin word "lapis" meaning "stone" and "lazuli" from the Arabic word "azula", meaning "blue". It came into being millions of years ago during the metamorphosis of lime to marble. Lapis Lazuli is an opaque dark blue color, often with golden inclusions and whitish marble veins. It is defined as a stone rather than a mineral because it is a mixture of several different mineral deposits such as diopside and lazurite. The most distinctive being the golden inclusions and/or veins of sparkling pyrite mixed within the deep blue color that makes Lapis so unique among gemstones.
Lapis is regarded by many people around the world as the stone of friendship and truth. The blue stone is said to encourage harmony in relationships and help its wearer to be authentic and express one’s feelings and opinions openly.
