Lapis Lazuli stone is a violet, azure, bright green, or red gemstone. The name refers to the Latin lapis, ‘stone’, and lazuli, which refers to the location where it was discovered, but has also come to mean ‘blue’. The best varieties are quarried in Afghanistan and are blue with gold speckles, which are caused by Pyrite particles present. In ancient times, this stone was called sapphire by Romans and Greeks. In Ancient Egypt, the mineral was processed into death masks and jewelry for the pharaoh, and in the Golden Age it was used to make precious paint. The pigment Lazurite has long been popular with painters for making the color ultramarine. Because of its decorative patterns and shades, Lapis Lazuli is still sought after as an enchanting ornamental stone.
