Lapis lazuli is a relatively rare, semi-precious gemstone, prized since antiquity for its intense blue color. The finest color is intense blue, lightly dusted with small flecks of golden pyrite.
Lapis has been worn for thousands of years in adornments, eye shadow and medicinal elixirs. Egyptian cultures buried a lapis lazuli scarab with their dead, and believed it to offer protection, while the earliest humans valued lapis lazuli more highly than gold. Mohs hardness is 5.5
Metaphysically it's thought to bring mental and emotional virility and strengthen the mind. It also is said to enhance creativity.
