Lately we have been swooning over the dark deep blue of the lapis lazuli stone.
Why do we love it: Lapis lazuli has a beautiful rich blue color, along with bits of pyrite which add a golden glittery sheen to the stone.
Where is it from: Afghanistan has been the main source, and history shows that we’ve been mining this blue stone for 6000 years!
What’s it made of: It gets it name from the mineral its made of : lazurite. Along with some calcite which gives it a white milky swirl and the pyrite that glitters.
Magical property: Lapis is a symbol of of luck, success and prosperity.
