One of the most sought after stones, Lapis Lazuli is greatly respected in the world of gemstones and is believed to have been used since the beginning of humankind. It is the universal symbol of truth and wisdom, and its rich blue hues are associated with honor, royalty, and spirit.
Lapis Lazuli’s history with humans spans over nine thousand years with the stone originally being mined in the Sar-I Sang mines in 7th millennium BCE in what is present day Afghanistan. The stone was not only valued for its use, but also for the rich ultraviolet dye sourced from it which became prized centuries later for it by painters. Said to be the “most perfect of all colors,” it is a composite rock formed from Sodalite, Pyrite, Calcite, and Lazurite, resulting in a dynamic marbling from rich to dark blue with gold flecks. In Egypt it was highly valued and is referenced in the Old Testament as sapphire. Ancient Egyptians used it for everything from amulets to cosmetics. It is believed to be the 5th stone in the original breastplate of the High Priest, and it was featured extensively throughout the golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen and other Kings and Queens of Egypt. The Islamic Orient regarded it for its ability to ward off the evil eye, and it was greatly used throughout Greco-Roman times as an ornamental stone and for its perceived aphrodisiac powers. Ancient Persians thought of it as a symbol for a starry night and throughout Medieval Europe it was used to thwart spirits of darkness while bringing wisdom and light.
Jewelry from this mystical stone has been found in prehistoric tombs all across the world but it wasn’t until the 16th century did artisans master the art of carving large rocks of it into decorative pieces. The legends surrounding Lapis Lazuli are some of the oldest in the world, such as the myth of Inanna. Known as the Goddess of Sensuality & Sex, Inanna was described as wearing a dress in royal blue, accompanied by a Lapis Lazuli necklace and measuring rod. These stones were thought to represent her role in creating the skies and oceans. Shop more from the Sydney Evan Collection at OsterJewelers.com
