This beautiful moon charm is made with Lapis Lazuli chips. Lapis Lazuli is an opaque blue to purple gemstone with white calcite and brassy pyrite and streaks of blue was discovered over 6000 years ago, in the Mountains in Afghanistan, where it is still considered the finest quality of Lapis Lazuli available today. This gemstone is formed with Lazurite, Calcite and Pyrite and carries the vibrations of these gemstones.
Lapis Lazuli is a semi-precious gemstone that has been sought after for its rich blue colour. Used in paintings during the renaissance and even by ancient royals of Egypt; the sarcophagus of King Tut is richly inlaid with Lapis, Queen Cleopatra used the blue in a power form for eye shadow. Used extensively, for thousands of years, in scarabs, pendants and other jewelry. Used as the fifth stone in the breastplates of high priests.
