About Lapis Lazuli:
Lapis was discovered over 6,000 years ago in the Hindu-Kush mountains of Afghanistan. It is a natural untreated stone with a royal blue color with gold flecks from pyrite inclusions.
Often referred to as the stone of truth and friendship, lapis can be found in several places around the world. Afghanistan is still known for having the highest quality stones.
During the middle ages lapis was used as a pigment for ultramarine color by painters. In the Middle East Lapis was used an inlays in wall panels in palaces and churches.
Moonstone is a natural gemstone in the feldspar family of minerals known for its blue flashes of color. The shimmering effect in the moonstone is called adularescence. Moonstone has a unique crystal structure that creates this optical phenomena by alternating layers of albite inclusions and layers of orthoclase. This creates a whitish-blue sheen of color as the light enters the stone and bounces back. Some moonstone will display tiny dots of rainbow colors in the stone when turned in the light. Moonstone can be found in many places around the world, with the most popular deposits in India and Sri Lanka.
