This stone looks delicious because it resembles an ice cream sandwich. The only difference is the biscuit is blue. It even has a layer of calcite "ice cream" that looks mouthwatering. You'll get hungry just by looking at it. The Stone has a large amount of calcite and pyrite deposits which makes it even more valuable.

Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue colored metamorphic rock which has been used as a semi-precious stone since the 7th millennium BC. It is prized for its intense mystic blue color and specks of calcite and pyrite which give the mottled colors a goldish hue. Lapis cabochons are stills used to this day for jewelry, decoration or collection.

The meaning of Lapis Lazuli comes from "Lapis", which is Latin for "stone", and "Lajevard", Persian name for the stone and also a location where lapis was once mined. The stone was ground for use its natural ultramarine pigment; it was the most expensive blue pigment and was reserved for nobility and depictions of Virgin Mary. Lapis lazuli makes a great collectible stone, decorative centerpiece for your living room, bathroom accents or even as a simple paper weight. The mystique of the stone always draws attention and adds intrigue to any room.This tone is a light blue color and has three layers. One layer is completely pyrite and calcite sandwiched between two lapis layers. The stone looks a candle that is bent forward. It even has the wick at the top. The stone is able to stand upright by itself.
