Lapis Lazuli Necklace: One of Evermeé's Best
The Lapis Lazuli necklace is one of the most popular editions in our store.
If you're in a search for a gift that would help induce tranquility and affection to a loved one, consider a gift made of the Lapis Lazuli.
What is Lapis Lazuli?
Lapis lazuli is a blue metamorphic rock used by people as a gemstone or a decking material for thousands of years.
It is one of the most sought after gemstones since man's history began.
The golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen sports Lapis rock decors, similar to other burial ornaments of Egyptian kings and queens.
The raw gem was among the most highly prized tributes paid to Egypt.
Everyone now uses Lapis Lazuli for necklaces, scarabs, pendants and other pieces of jewelry.
In the medical field, earlier people would ground the stone into powder for dyes, eye shadow, and medicinal elixirs.
The gemstone’s raw deep blue opaque color with gold flecks gives it a celestial appearance.
It is no doubt one of the most elegant gifts anyone can give to their special someone.
It doesn't matter whether it is in the form of a pendant, a lapis lazuli locket, or lapis lazuli necklace.
Where does Lapis Lazuli come from?
The Lapis Lazuli rock is a result of the formation of multiple minerals such as Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite, and Pyrite.
The latter is what gives the stone its gold flecks which add to its heavenly look.
Only with the presence of these four minerals can a rock be called Lapis Lazuli. Afghanistan is currently the world's most significant source of lapis lazuli.
Mining for raw Lapis Lazuli necklaces first occurred in the Badakhshan Province of northeastern Afghanistan as early as 7000 BC.
The oldest mines that are still in use today date back to around 4000 B.C.
Earlier people used the gemstone to make beads, small jewelry items such as pendants, and Lapis Lazuli necklaces. Excavators found evidence at Neolithic archaeological sites dating back to about 3000 BC in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq.
Aside from Afganistan, other commercial deposits that produce notable amounts of Lapis Lazuli are in Russia and Chile, Canada, Argentina, and Pakistan.
In the US, on the other hand, small amounts of raw stone have been produced in Arizona, Colorado, and California.
