Lapis lazuli has been a treasured semi-precious opaque gemstone throughout mankind's history. The ancient cultures of Egypt, China, Rome and Greece, among others, have used this colorful material in all sorts of ways. Archeologists have found objects such as furniture, jewelry and makeup that incorporate lapis. Artists of old have also used it in a ground down form, as vibrant paint.
