Lapis lazuli is said to be able to open minds and give enlightenment. It's used to encourage self-awareness, self-confidence, self-knowledge, peace and harmony, compassion and wearing it helps create a good mood throughout the day. In ancient times, the Sumerians believed that the spirit of their gods lived inside the stone, while the ancient Egyptians saw it as a symbol of the night sky. For centuries, lapis lazuli has been associated with strength and courage, royalty and wisdom, intellect and truth and highly prized due to its intense colour.
During late mediaeval times it was ground into a powder to make ultramarine, the finest of all pigments, which was used by leading artists of the Renaissance and Baroque, such as Michelangelo who, while painting the Sistine Chapel, ordered vast quantities of lapis lazuli to depict the blues of heaven due to its vivid colour and which is now one of the most exquisite examples of lapis pigment used by an artist.
