The Truth and Friendship marble urn is the first memorial urn featured in our Shades of Blue Cremation Urn Collection. The Urn Garden artists have crafted this cremation urn from the ancient stone Lapis Lazuli , the stone of friendship and truth. The blue stone is said to encourage harmony in relationships and help its wearer to be authentic and give his or her opinion openly.
Lapis features deep shades of blue dusted with golden flecks of pyrite and intermittent gray or white calcite deposits and takes an excellent polish that shimmers like a star. This ancient stone was a favorite with the Egyptians who crafted it for jewelery, and used the crushed minerals for eyeshadow.
