Your description says this urn is carved from Lapis Lazuli. Does that mean the carver starts with an actual block of solid Lapis Lazuli and makes the urn from that? The color looks correct for Lapis, but I am wondering how it can possibly be solid Lapis for this price? Thanks for any elucidation.
Our description says the Lapis is used in the making of this urn, no where does it say that it's carved from a solid block of the gemstone.
Our Friendship and Truth memorial urn uses the ancient stone Lapis Lazuli, the stone of friendship and truth. This blue mineral is said to encourage harmony in relationships and help the bearer of the stone to be authentic and give his or her opinion openly.
Lapis features deep shades of blue dusted with golden flecks of pyrite and intermittent grey or white calcite deposits. Lapis takes an excellent polish, shimmers like a star, and was a was a favorite with the ancient Egyptians who used it for jewelery and crushed the minerals for eyeshadow.
