Lapis lazuli, the legendary and beautiful dark blue stone, sourced from the Badakhshan Mines of northern Afghanistan, has been carved and inlaid into wonderful works of art for thousands of years. Some of the earliest jewellery known to man was carved out of lapis lazuli. The rulers of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Persia collected and treasured this fabulous stone.
