Lapis lazuli was one of the earliest gemstone materials. 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.

Found in artifacts dating to the predynastic Naqada II (3500-3100 BC) time period throughout the rest of ancient Egypt’s long history, lapis lazuli appears to have been one of the most popular gem stones in the ancient culture. Known as KHESBED, the stone was used in jewelry, in effigies, in amulets, and even in medicines (Shaw, Ian; The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt; pg. 313).Lapis is a deep blue stone, reflecting both the life-giving waters of the Nile and the divine expanse of the sky. Associated with the sky goddess, Nut, the goddess of balance and truth, Ma’at, and the sun god, Re, lapis was highly sought after in ancient Egypt.
The name lapis comes from word pencil in Spanish.
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 the Badakhshan province of northern Afghanistan, where it has been mined continuously for over 6,000 years.
Lapis is one of the few gemstones that is a rock rather than a mineral. That is because lapis is normally a mixture of 3 minerals: lazurite, calcite and pyrite. Lazurite, a complex mineral containing sulfur, is the essential ingredient of lapis and gives it its vivid blue color. Calcite is calcium carbonate, a white mineral responsible for the white streaks in many specimens of lapis. Pyrite is an iron sulfide which is white-gold in color and lends lapis its distinctive glitter.
The finest Lapis Lazuli is a deep intense blue. High quality lapis is smooth and fine grained with a smoothly polished surface. Collectors look for a minimum of calcite.
Traditionally believed to increase mental clarity, virility, and calm. Lapis Lazuli is energy focuser for teachers, lecturers and speakers. Enhances creative self-expression. It is believed to be useful in relieving depression and promoting spirituality. Lapis Lazuli is also powerful during meditation.
The stone is said to increase psychic abilities. Lapis is said to be a cure for melancholy and for certain types of fever. Lapis lazuli eliminates negative emotions. It relieves sore throat pain.
