Prized since antiquity, lapis lazuli's beauty is captivating. Lapis beads have been found in Neolithic burials, and the stone was favored for amulets and scarabs by the ancient Egyptians. Cleopatra used powdered lapis as eye shadow, and the stone was inlaid in golden masks, statues and mirrors.
Lapis lazuli is a favorite of contemporary jewelers, as evidenced in Novica's Gallery of Lapis Earrings. Much lapis reveals golden incrustations of pyrite which are enhanced in polished globes and teardrops. Set in gold vermeil or silver necklaces and earrings, it's deep blue tones are mesmerizing.
