About Lapis: Lapis is a semiprecious stone valued for its deep-blue color caused by the presence of the mineral lazurite, which is the source of the pigment ultramarine. Lapis is an ancient stone with history that dates back to ancient Egypt, where it was used as a favorite stone for amulets and ornaments such as scarabs; it was also used by the Assyrians and Babylonians for seals. Lapis jewelry has been found at excavations of the Predynastic Egyptian site Naqada (3300–3100 BC), and powdered lapis was used as eyeshadow by Cleopatra. In Medieval times, lapis was used as pigment for artists’ paint.

About labradorite: Labradorite is truly a fascinatingly beautiful mineral. Its a mineral whose charm is not fully noticed and may be overlooked if not viewed from the proper position. When the light hits this plain gray stone, flashes of blue, yellow and green, called labradorescence are revealed. Labradorite was first found in 1770 on the Labrador Peninsula in Canada. It is also found in Norway, and the former USSR. Legend says that Labradorite is a power stone, allowing you to see through illusions and determine the actual form of your dreams and goals. Sounds good to me!

About tanzanite: Tanzanite is a highly coveted gemstone because it occurs in only one place worldwide. Tanzanite was discovered in Tanzania, Africa in 1967. It is known for its mysterious blue color with a tinge of purple. Thanks to its unusual color and the help of the New York jeweler's Tiffany & Co., it has rapidly become one of the most coveted gemstones in the world.

While tanzanite's most desirable color as a gemstone is a deep blue to violet-blue, the stone also frequently comes in shades of lavender, lilac and periwinkle blue.
