In ancient times Lapis Lazuli was most highly regarded, because of its beautiful colour and the valuable ultramarine blue dye derived from it.
Its name comes from the Latin word 'lapis', meaning "stone," and the Persian word 'lazhuward', meaning "blue."
Lapis Lazuli deposits are formed by multiple minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite, and it is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks (pyrites).
