LAPIS LAZULI WORRY STONES
Lapis lazuli is unlike most other gem materials because it is not a mineral. Instead, it is a rock composed of multiple minerals. The blue color of lapis lazuli is mainly derived from the presence of the mineral, lazurite. This gem is highly sought after in the gem trade as it is used for a variety of ornamentations and jewelry. Additionally, lapis lazuli was prized throughout the ancient world as a symbol of status and wealth in Egypt and Mesopotamia.
