LAPIS LAZULI AND STERLING SILVER EARRINGS

The name Lapis Lazuli comes from the Persian word lazhward meaning blue, in allusion to its colour. In ancient times, lapis lazuli was known as sapphirus, which is the name that we use today for the blue corundum variety sapphire. Lapis Lazuli has been highly valued for many thousands of years. The most famous locality for fine quality lapis lazuli is the same ancient deposit high in the mountains of Afghanistan where it was originally mined at least 6000 years ago. Lapis lazuli today is still a very popular lapidary material. It is made into a variety of hand-crafted objects such as carvings, spheres, beads, cabochons and other jewelry items.

The astrological sign of lapis lazuli is Sagittarius
