CITED FROM WIKIPEDIA:
Lapis lazuli is a
gemstone of the kind that might have come straight out of the Arabian Nights: a
deep blue with golden inclusions of pyrites which shimmer like “Little Stars”.
This opaque, deep blue gemstone has a grand past. It was among the first gemstones
to be worn as jewelry and worked on. At excavations in the ancient
centers of culture around the Mediterranean, archaeologists have again and
again found among the grave furnishings decorative chains and figures made of
lapis lazuli – clear indications that the deep blue stone was already popular
thousands of years ago among the people of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Persia, Greece
and Rome. It is said that the legendary city of Ur on the Euphrates plied a
keen lapis lazuli trade as long ago as the fourth millennium B.C., the material
coming to the land of the two great rivers from the famous deposits in
Afghanistan. In other cultures, lapis lazuli was regarded as a holy stone.
Particularly in the Middle East, it was thought to have magical powers.
Countless signet rings, scarabs and figures were wrought from the blue stone
which Alexander the Great brought to Europe. There, the color was referred to
as 'ultramarine', which means something like 'from beyond the sea'
