Lapis lazuli, also known as just lapis, is a stone with a storied past, first treasured during the time of the Pharaohs in 5000 BC. Its deep blue hue and opaque quality have long made it a desirable gemstone. 'Lapis Lazuli' means 'stone of azure', and this lovely hairpin is made from chipped, imperfect gemstones that have been carefully cut and set with resin. The pin itself is 4 inches long.
