Lapis lazuli (sometimes abbreviated to lapis) is a semi-precious stone prized since antiquity for its intense blue colour. Lapis is a rock and not a mineral because it is made up from various other minerals. To be a mineral it would have one constituent only. Most lapis lazuli also contains calcite (white), sodalite (blue) and pyrite (metallic yellow).
For more than 6,000 years, the Kokcha river valley of Badakhshan province in  Afghanistan was the source of lapis for the ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations, as well as the later Greek, Roman, the Harappan colony and during the height of the Indus valley civilization about 2000 B.C.
In addition to the Afghan deposits, lapis has been found in the Andes near Ovalle, Chile, where it is usually pale rather than deep blue. Other less important sources are the Lake Baikal region of Russia, Siberia, Angola, Burma, Pakistan, USA (California and Colorado), Canada and India.
Lapis is the Latin meaning for 'stone' and lazuli the genitive form of the Medieval Latin lazulum, which is from the Arabic lāzaward, which is the name of a place where lapis lazuli was mined. The finest color is intense blue, lightly dusted with small flecks of golden pyrite.The name Lapis lazuli came to be associated eventually with this color blue. 
In ancient Egypt lapis lazuli was a favorite stone for amulets and ornaments such as scarabs; it was also used by the Assyrians and Babylonians for seals. Lapis takes an excellent polish and can be made into jewellery, carvings, boxes, mosaics, ornaments and vases. Lapis jewelry has been found at excavations of the Predynastic Egyptian site Naqada (3300–3100 B.C.), and powdered lapis was used as eye shadow by Cleopatra herself. 
Before the year 1834, when it became possible to produce this color synthetically, lapis lazuli has been grounded to powder and processed to remove impurities and isolate the component lazurite, which forms the pigment ultramarine. This blue pigment ultramarine was not only precious but so intense that its radiance outshone all other colors; it was very expensive also. But unlike all other blue pigments, which tend to pale in the light, it has lost none of its radiance to this very day. Many pictures of the Madonna, for example, were created using this paint. Even nowadays, the blue pigment obtained from lapis lazuli is mainly used in restoration work and by collectors of historical paints.
Apart from Jewelry, paintings Lapis lazuli has been used in architecture for cladding the walls and columns of palaces and churches.
 
Lapis lazuli  can be shaped into any beads, Lapis lazuli round beads, Lapis lazuli oval beads, Lapis lazuli flat oval beads, Lapis lazuli Buttons, Lapis lazuli drops, Lapis lazuli tube beads, Lapis lazuli pear beads, Lapis lazuli nuggets, Lapis lazuli tumblers, Lapis lazuli roughs, Lapis lazuli roundel, Lapis lazuli uncut, Lapis lazuli tire are the common beads for jewelries.
Along these regular shapes Lapis lazuli faceted tumbler and Lapis lazuli faceted ovals, Lapis lazuli faceted chewing gums, and Lapis lazuli faceted coins  have more spectacular, striking and sparkling luster.
