The story:
In ancient Egypt, Lapis Lazuli symbolized divine power and life force. Its deep blue color speckled with gold was associated with immortality and infinity. The sarcophagi of the pharaohs of Lapis Lazuli were decorated, and amulets were placed in this stone to protect them, in the shape of a scarab or an eye of Horus.
