Greeks spoke of an ancient sapphire which was included with gold, and this was unmistakenly Lapis. A similar reference can be found in Job 28:6. Tradition says that the Ten Commandments were carved on tablets of Sapphire, and, as mentioned, it is believed that this and other references to Sapphire in the Bible are actually Lapis Lazuli. And Ezekiel 1:26 describes God's throne appearing to be Lapis Lazuli.
