Lapis lazuli is one of the oldest opaque gemstones in history--more than 6,500 years! This deep blue stone includes tiny flecks of mica, like a night sky full of stars.
It was used as the finest art through the ages especially when it was used in ancient Egypt, beloved by the Babylonians, Minoans, Chinese, Greeks, and up to the Romans. It was historically used in the death mask of King Tutankhamen, where they inlaid it with turquoise and carnelian in bright gold. It was also being played as cosmetics of Cleopatra and was a subject from a well-known writer Marco Polo way back in 1271. Michelangelo grounds up lapis lazuli to create blue paint called ultramarine that brings color and brings the robes of Mary of Nazareth painted on church walls.
