Lapis Lazuli is a beautiful blue stone with sparkles of gold composed of Lazurite, Calcite, and Pyrite which gives it the gold specks. It was a highly treasured stone by ancient Egyptians because the color blue was associated with Sky Goddess Isis, and the crystal symbolized creation and rebirth. It was even crushed and used as makeup under the eyes by royalty. Amulets made of Lapis Lazuli were found in King Tut’s tomb. Lapis can be found in US, Middle East, Egypt, Russia, Italy, Afghanistan and Chile.
