Lapis Lazuli is a blue metamorphic rock that has been sought after for ages due to its intense blue coloration! There are records of lapis being mined as far back as the 7th century BC in current day Afganhistan. It was used often in this time period by the Indus Valley civilization. By the middle ages it had begun to be exportated to Europe. In this time period, it was ground and used as a pigment for the color ultramarine. This was used in many works from this era. It is able to be found worldwide, but major mines are located in Afganhistan, Russia, and Peru.
Metaphysical: Those who practice energy and metaphysical healing believe that Lapis Lazuli represents strength, courage, and wisdom.
