Lapis Lazuli Lapis lazuli has been used for more than 6,000 years for jewelry and ornamental objects. Its name is from "lapis", the Latin word for stone, and "azul", the Arabic word for blue.
Its unique deep (lazur) blue color has never lost its attraction. It places lapis lazuli next to its fabulous sky-blue cousin turquoise. An affordable stone for its carat weight, it is popular as a cabochon for rings and bracelets and an all-time classic stone with a silver setting.
Lapis lazuli is fairly soft, (5-6 on the Mohs scale) and sensitive to strong pressure, high temperatures and household chemicals.
For cultures around the world and through history, lapis lazuli has been a stone of truth and friendship. The blue stone is reputed to promote harmony in relationships.
Blue lapis lazuli gemstones are indeed one of the most classic blue gemstones frequently used in gemstone rings. Lapis also very-well suited for all other types of gemstone jewelry too, including gemstone earrings, pins and brooches, as well as in necklaces and fashionable gemstone pendants.

I love that I was able to find a site that offers REAL gemstones. I love the pictures provided of the gems so I can look at each one from different angles, I love the variety of gems on the site & I love the ability to narrow down my search to look at certain gems that fit my criteria.
My experience with gemselect was awesome so far. I had a few questions about their website and making orders and they replied quickly and were happy to help. I have not received the items I ordered yet as I just ordered them this morning. Although, I truly feel I am going to be a very happy customer once I do receive my items. Gemselect guarantees all their items and have a great return policy just incase. The have a vast selection of all kinds of stones and not to mention their prices are much better than some other websites. Thanks Gemselect I’ll be doing business here from now on!
Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
