If ever there were a gemstone which unites the physical world with the spiritual realm, lapis is that gemstone. In Sumerian lore, Inanna—goddess of love, sex, beauty, and justice—wore lapis on her journey to the underworld. In ancient Egypt, images of Maat—goddess of truth, morality, and cosmic balance—were carved in lapis, and lapis lined the tombs of many pharaohs including Tutankhamun. In Buddhism, lapis is a gem used to empower spiritual tranquility, and even the heavens of the Sistine Chapel are painted with ground lapis. A gemstone of divine transformation, lapis has been revered throughout time and civilizations for its celestial blue and sacred attributes.
