Lapis lazuli 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.  Many Lapis Lazuli stones exhibit a speckled gold or silver glint due to the presence of shiny iron pyrites.

Leonardo da Vinci and other Masters used Lapis Lazuli to create vibrant blue pigments for their masterpieces
