Provenance:

This Lapis lazuli cab is the gem variety of Lazurite and one of the most beautiful opaque gemstones and is a sodium aluminum mineral of considerable complexity. This Lapis cabochon occurs in only a few major deposits around the would. The most prized lapis is the dark blue material. Lapis from Afghanistan is often found liberally sprinkled throughout with pyrite which creates a striking combination of rich blue and brassy gold. White calcite is sometimes found with the rich blue and gold cab. In the 1800's and early 1900's Lapis was mined by the "fire-set method". large fires were kindled at the tunnel face and then quenched with water. The sudden cooling caused face rocks to shatter, simplifying removal of the ore. The gem material was then cobbed away from its matrix. Availability of explosives eventually obviated this technique. The only disparagment that can be applied to Lapis lazuli is that the pyrite constituent stinks like rotten eggs when cutting. This Lapis Arrowhead is 100% natural, no dyes or stabilizers have been used. This cab is perfect to have set for a pendant or to give as a gift.

Metaphysical:

Lapis lazuli is said to impart ancient knowledge, and the wisdom to use it and to enhance one's awareness, insight and intellect.
