Lapis Lazuli

Lapis lazuli - a rare metamorphic rock consisting mainly of lazurite but also of other minerals from the sodalite group, e.g. Hauyne. These minerals give the rock a beautiful blue color that has been used for centuries as a pigment in colors.<br /><br />Our lapis lazuli comes from Afghanistan.<br /><br />Sculptures and jewelry are made of rock, but above all it is known as a component of blue pigment, which in history was unimaginably precious.
