Lapis Lazuli | The Folklore
Lapis Lazuli has been prized since antiquity for its intense blue colour. Valued as the stone of royalty and honour, it was the most highly prized tribute paid to the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt; in Persia, it was called the stone of the starry night. Michelangelo used finely powdered lapis lazuli to express intense emotion in his frescoes on the roof of the Sistine Chapel.
Lapis Lazuli is the universal symbol of wisdom and truth, and is associated with love, honour and healing.
