Lapis Lazuli- December birthstone, 5-6 hardness on Mohs Scale.
From AGTA.org: The timeless paintings of the Renaissance period are a testament to the beauty of lapis lazuli. Master artists of this time used the intense blue gem as the secret ingredient in ultramarine—a precious blue pigment able to evoke everything from the deepest seas to the robes of the Virgin Mary.
Lapis lazuli’s pigment remained inimitable until 1834, and even today, many argue that there is no substitute for its intensity.
A dark blue microcrystalline gemstone, lapis lazuli is composed primarily of the mineral lazurite. Frequently, it can be found sparkling with golden pyrite inclusions.
