Lapis Lazuli Gemstone Information
Lapis Lazuli Introduction
If we look at the name Lapis Lazuli itself we can see its importance to the world of gemstones. Lapidary is the name of a person who cuts, shapes and polishes rough gemstones into objects of beauty, the word comes from Lapis meaning stone.
Contrary to popular belief, Lazuli did not mean blue, it was the name of an area where the gemstone could be found, but it became so completely identified with the blue that the color was named after the gemstone! Lazuli is the root of the English word azure which describes the almost ideal blue color and the French seaside resort town of Cote d'Azur is so named for its stunning blue sea.
So Lapis Lazuli is the quintessentially blue gemstone, the one you see decorating the tombs of Egyptian mummies, covering the gates of Babylonian cities, adorning the rings, bracelets and necklaces of Roman nobility and starring in exhibitions of ancient artifacts in museums around the world.
The majority of gemstones are valued by their color and none more so than Lapis Lazuli
