Lapis lazuli contains several minerals – lazurite, pyrite, calcite and mica. In its traditional deposits in Afghanistan, people have been mining it since ancient times. It used to be an ingredient for blue dye called ultramarine. Lapis catches one’s eye with its striking blue colour, which is influenced by lazurite mineral in its structure. The golden grains in its structure is the presence of pyrite or mica. The name lapis lazuli refers to Arabian word for blue.
