About Lapis Lazuli :-Lapis is a beautiful rock an aggregate of several minerals, mainly lazurite, calcite, and pyrite. Even, deep blue color is typical of the most desirable lapis. Tiny golden flecks of pyrite complement the gem's appearance. The tablet cut is a popular cut style for lapis lazuli jewelry.Lapis lazuli is found in limestone in the Kokcha River valley of Badakhshan province in northeastern Afghanistan, where the Sar-e-Sang mine deposits have been worked for more than 6,000 years. Afghanistan was the source of lapis for the ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations, as well as the later Greeks and Romans. Ancient Egyptians obtained the material through trade with Aryans. During the height of the Indus Valley Civilisation, approximately 2000 BCE, the Harappan colony, now known as Shortugai, was established near the lapis mines.
