Lapis Lazuli Jewelry.

Lapis Lazuli is another stone known from the dawn of time. It was much beloved by all parts of the ancient that could gain access to it. It is in the Taj Mjal, and in ancient Sumerian and Chinese burial troves. The treasure of Tutankhamun owes much of its glory to Lapis Lazuli.

The finest classical Lapis comes from the northern mountains of Afganistan, supposedly some of the roughest and wildest country in the world. It ranges from the deep blue of a late evening sky to somewhat lighter shades of dark sky blue. This is the classical Lapis Lazuli that I work with.

There is also a very interesting new variant of the stone which is known as "Denim Lapis Lazuli" Denim Lapis is the same blue color as classical Lapis, but is lighter, and has patches of white in it. If classic Lapis is the shade of the sky at late dusk, Denim Lapis is a daylight sky with light clouds. The ensemble on the right is made with Denim Lapis.
