Lapis lazuli is one of the oldest gemstone dating back through history for more than 7000 years. The world’s primary source for Lapis lazuli is from mines in northeast Afghanistan. It is a deep blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone that was highly prized for its intense color. The natural ultramarine pigment made from ground lapis lazuli was the second most expensive pigment available during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Gold was the most expensive. The robes of Angels and the Virgin Mary often included the use of Lapis lazuli.
From a spiritual perspective, Lapis lazuli encourages self-awareness and allows for self-expression which assist in building confidence.
