Lapis lazuli, or lapis has been prized for its deep rich colour for centuries. Ground into a powder, lapis was used as a pigment to make ultramarine blue paint in frescoes and many Renaissance era masterpieces. Lapis is included on birthstone lists for September as well as December.
Lapis is a porous stone with a Mohs hardness of 5. Most lapis has been treated in some way; dyes, oils and waxes may have been used to enhance the colour. It should not be immersed in water, immersed in an ultrasonic cleaner or treated with chemicals or jewelry cleaner. The best way to care for it is to give it a very quick rinse in water and a tiny amount of dish soap. The setting can be polished with the silver cleaning cloth provided with your order.
