Now a little bit about the stone...
Lapis, this historical stone has a name closely associated with its intense colour. Its name was derived from the Latin word 'lapis' meaning 'stone', and from the Arabic and Persian word 'lazaward'. 'Lazaward" was the Persian name for lapis stone, as well as the name of its mining location. In other parts of the world, words for 'blue' were named after the colour of lapis lazuli, including the English word 'azure'; Italian 'azzurro'; Polish 'azur'; Spanish 'azur' and Romanian 'azuriu'. Today Lapis is still considered to be one of the most important opaque blue gemstones available.
