Lapis Lazuli has been used in jewellery since ancient times. High quality lapis is prized for its intense blue colour and golden flecks of pyrite. Its name was derived from the Latin word 'lapis' meaning 'stone', and 'lazulum' which is related to the word for blue in many languages including the English 'azure'; Italian 'azzurro'; Polish 'azur'; Spanish 'azur' and Romanian 'azuriu'.
