|The golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen was richly inlaid with Lapis, as were other burial ornaments of Egyptian kings and queens. Lapis Lazuli is one of the most sought after stones in use since man’s history began. Its deep celestial blue remains a symbol of royalty, honor, wisdom, and truth. It is a rock formed by many minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite.|
The stone for this specimen was chosen for its rich royal blue color, the many bright gold flecks of pyrite as well as the Quartz veins carrying golden pyrite which crisscross this 18.5-pound specimen. The size of this specimen and the absence of flaws makes it rare and beautiful. Ground and processed into powder, it produced the intense, but expensive, ultramarine color favored by the painter, Michelangelo.
