Lapis Lazuli Palm Stone

Lapis Lazuli, prized for its deep blue color and golden flecks of pyrite, has a rich history dating back thousands of years. Lapis Lazuli has been mined for over 6,000 years, primarily in the mountains of Afghanistan, where the world's finest specimens are still found today. It is also found in other locations such as Russia, Chile, and the United States. The stone forms in limestone deposits through the metamorphism of minerals like lazurite, calcite, and pyrite under high pressure and heat. Once extracted, Lapis Lazuli is carved, shaped, and polished for use in jewelry, carvings, and decorative objects.

Lapis Lazuli is prized for its deep blue color, often described as "royal" or "ultramarine," ranging from light to dark blue, with occasional hints of violet. It is characterized by its striking golden flecks of pyrite and occasional white streaks of calcite. The stone has a distinctively opaque appearance and a waxy to vitreous luster when polished. Lapis Lazuli is often cut into cabochons or beads to showcase its vibrant color and unique inclusions. Its rich blue hue and shimmering golden pyrite make it a popular choice for jewelry and ornamental objects, symbolizing wisdom, truth, and royalty throughout history.
