Lapis lazuli is actually an aggregate of many minerals, the main one being lazulite (in a proportion of 20 to 40%). Its name comes from Latin and Arabic-Persian, it means "blue stone". It has been used to make ornaments since prehistory and has been used for the composition of pigments of the color "ultramarine blue" in the Middle Ages. The deposits producing the most beautiful Lapis-Lazuli have been exploited in the Afghan mountains for more than 6000 years.
