Lapis Lazuli Bracelet from Afghanistan

This stunning bracelet features a square-shaped lapis lazuli stone, known for its deep blue color and prized as a semi-precious stone since ancient times. Each bracelet is unique, with variations in shades of blue, making it a one-of-a-kind piece.

The lapis lazuli used in this bracelet is sourced from the Sar-i Sang mines in Shortugai, as well as other mines in Badakhshan province in northeast Afghanistan. This region has a long history of mining lapis lazuli, with artifacts dating back to 7570 BC found in the Indus Valley civilization.

During the Middle Ages, lapis lazuli was exported to Europe where it was ground into powder and used as the finest and most expensive blue pigment, known as ultramarine. This pigment was used by renowned artists such as Masaccio, Perugino, Titian, and Vermeer, and was often reserved for the clothing of central figures in their paintings.

Today, lapis lazuli is still mined in northeast Afghanistan, as well as in Russia, Chile, Pakistan, Italy, Mongolia, the United States, and Canada. However, the highest quality lapis lazuli is found in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The word 'lapis' comes from Latin, meaning 'stone,' and this bracelet truly showcases the beauty and elegance of this stone. Add this exquisite piece to your jewelry collection and enjoy the rich history and stunning color of lapis lazuli.
