Lapis Lazuli is a semi-precious, heavily sought after stone that is blue in color due to sulfur deposits in its matrix, and often has flecks of pyrite and calcite. Its name derives from lapis Latin for stone, and lazhuward Persian for blue. Used in ancient Egyptian art, and often found in tombs, Lapis Lazuli is said to bridge the gap between the physical and spiritual world, and can help with spiritual transformation. It is also believed to stimulate intellectual abilities, aiding with learning, memory, and problem solving.
