The ancient Egyptians associated this beautiful blue stone with the night sky. It was seen as a holy stone and used for amulets and scarabs. The world famous death mask of Tut-Ankh-Amon is made of pure gold and stripes of lapis lazuli.
The ancient Egyptians not only used lapis lazuli for jewelry, amulets and scarabs, but also pulverized it and mixed it with fat so they could use it as eye shadow.
