Come on a 6,000 year old journey to look at one of the nature's most exotic and beautiful stones, the coveted Lapis Lazuli. The oldest Lapis Lazuli mines, the treacherous Blue Mountain in the West Hindu-Kush Mountains, Afghanistan, dates back six millenia and still yields the world's best quality and most beautiful Lapis Lazuli.
The stone has been found among the many treasures of ancient royal tombs such as the famed Egyptian boy King, Tutankhamun and Queen Pu-abi, from An Nasiriyah, southern Iraq. Treasure include, scarabs, necklaces, rings, figurines all made of Afghanistan's best blue stones!
Today Lapis Lazuli is used from wall and ceiling mosaics to jewelry and fancy carved figurines. It is still ground into a powder, an ancient technique, and made into ultramarine paint. The paint was used in Renaissance paintings, especially in painting the clothing of the Virgin Mary and for sky scenery.
