Lapis Lazuli History, Lore, Facts, Myths and Pictures


Top quality lapis lazuli comes from Afghanistan, but is also found in Siberia, Chile,  the U.S., Pakistan, and Canada.

A strong blue, sometimes with a hint of violet, lapis' value decreases with the presence of white patches (calcite), while small veins of pyrite are often prized.  

The Egyptians used Lapis for seals, cosmetic purposes and often carved it into vases and figurines. 

A soft stone, 5-5.5 on the Mohs' scale lapis lazuli is one of the most valuable semi opaque stones.
