Art Nouveau Lapis Ring
Lapis Lazuli (rock blue from the Latin) is a mixed mineral gem composed primarily of the mineral lazurite. Lapis lazuli often contains pyrite, giving lapis the look of a deep blue sky with sparking golden stars. It also often contains calcite and sodalite as well as other minerals. Lapis was a favorite of the ancient Egyptians and came from the same mines, in Afganistan, that are still the source of the finest material today.
Lapis is thought to expand the mind, promote awareness and help the wearer gain insight into dreams. It’s a wonder that it’s legal.
