Lapis Lazuli is a compound of the minerals Lazurite, Calcite and Pyrite. It was formed as the result of contact metamorphism , when pre existing limestone and marble rocks were changed by the intense heat and pressure of intruding magmas.  The process formed the deep blue Lazurite stone . Many Lapis Lazuli stones exhibit a speckled gold or silver glint , due to the presence of shiny iron pyrites. 

Lapis Lazuli was revered for its beautiful deep celestial blue colour by many ancient cultures and was used to create ultramarine colour fabric dye favoured  by royalty. In Tibetan culture Lapis Lazuli was prized more than diamonds being  associated with spiritual attainment, wisdom and truth . Cleopatra's iconic blue eye shadow was originally the dust of Lapis Lazuli stones.. Leonardo da Vinci and other Masters used Lapis Lazuli to create vibrant blue pigments for their masterpieces
