Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue metamorphic rock found as early as the 7th millennium BCE. Lapis lazuli, also known just as Lapis was exported to Europe by the end of the Middle Ages where it was ground into powder and made into ultramarine, the finest and most expensive of all blue pigments.
Known as the wisdom stone, Lapis Lazuli was adored by ancient Egyptians. It is said to bring wisdom and self-expression.
