About Lapis Lazuli:
Lapis was discovered over 6,000 years ago in the Hindu-Kush mountains of Afghanistan. It is a natural untreated stone with a royal blue color with gold flecks from Pyrite inclusions. Lapis can now be found in several places around the world. Afghanistan is still known for having the highest quality stones.
During the middle ages Lapis was used as a pigment for ultramarine color by painters and ground into powder for eye shadows. In the Middle East Lapis was used an inlays in wall panels in palaces and churches.
