AiryCharm Wholesale Lapis lazuli Beads
Lapis lazuli means “blue stone” in Latin. It is a semi-precious stone that was once more valuable than gold. Lapis lazuli is considered a rock, not a mineral. For a gemstone to be considered a mineral, it has to be made of only one component. Lapis lazuli is composed mainly of lazurite but it also contains calcite, which is the white part, sonolyn which is the blue part and pyrite which is also known as “fool’s gold”.
It was very popular during the Egyptian and Roman times. An interesting fact about lapis lazuli is that it was used in the mask of Tutankhamen. The mask was made out of gold, quartz, and lapis lazuli. Cleopatra used to crush lapis lazuli and use it as eye shadow. The best quality lapis lazuli comes from Afghanistan which has been mined for more than 6000 years! But it is also found in Siberia, Pakistan, Chile, United States, and Canada. Another interesting fact about lapis lazuli is that it was used by the famous artist Michelangelo in most of his paintings; for example, the blue sky and the blue rope of Virgin Mary were made from lapis lazuli.
