Lapis Lazuli with it’s deep azure blue color was treasured by ancient Babylonian and Egyptian civilizations and often worn by royalty.  Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli to represent heaven, protection to ward off evil. Also believed  to be a sacred stone and buried with the dead to protect and guide them in the afterlife….was widely used  for cosmetics and painting.

Ground with motar & pestle Lapis Lazuli creates the color Ultramarine Blue for painting, used by ancient artists such as Rembrandt…. before ‘Art Supply Stores’ existed cultures ground stones and various natural elements to create all colors to paint with.  One of the semipecious stones used in Florentine mosaics ‘ Commesso’  ~ a technique of creating pictures with thin, cut-to-shape pieces of brightly semiprecious stones, developed in Florence in the late 16th century.  Commesso pictures, used mainly for tabletops and small wall panels, images range from emblematic & floral subjects to landscapes…..Symbolically associated with the Throat Chakra in the Hindu tradition ….Lapis Lazuli is found in the Afghanistan, Egypt, Canada, Chile, the US, and South America…..Lapis lazuli is not a mineral but a rock colored by lazurite, in addition to the sodalite minerals in lapis lazuli, small amounts of white calcite and of golden pyrite crystals are usually present.   The Lapis Lazuli used in these jewellery pieces originates in Afghanistan, which I purchased from an Afghanistan family owning an Afghanistan Gem Shop in ChaingMai, Thailand.

Dreams of Constellations and Astrology ~ The infinity of the Sky….Imagine…..
