Sapphirus SOLD

Lapis Lazuli is gemstone of the deepest blue with golden shining Pyrite inclusions which twinkle like little stars in the midnight heaven. In ancient times, Lapis Lazuli was known as Sapphirus, which is the name that is used today for the blue corundum variety of Sapphire.

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.

16" long to the pendant. Hammered copper, lapis teardrops, pure copper chain, and crystal glass. Necklace $32, Earrings $9
