Lapis Lazuli: Meaning “blue stone” in Latin, Lapis Lazuli has been mined in Afghanistan since 8000 BC. Flecked with golden pyrite, lapis lazuli has always been a symbol of the starry night sky and the heavens.They used it for jewelry and ceremonial objects and pulverized it for pigments and cosmetics. This heavenly stone will often contain flecks of pyrite, which contrast beautifully with the stone’s rich blue color. Europeans ground the stone to create Ultramarine the most precious and expensive pigment available. European artists such as Giotto, Durer and Titian used this “Lapis Lazuli paint” sparingly, to adorn especially important religious figures and to render the heavens, as seen in Giotto’s famous Arena Chapel in Padua, Italy. Metaphysically, lapis lazuli promotes wisdom, good judgement, intellectual analysis and problem solving. A stone of truth, lapis lazuli aids in all forms of communication (spoke, written and spiritual) and enhances intellectual ability. It stimulates a desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning, which makes it a great stone for professionals and students.
