Lapis Lazuli Necklace with Cutout Cross
Lapis lazuli, as featured on this necklace, has been used for centuries to create beautiful jewelry. Lapis beads have been found in Egypt dating back to 3000 BC and were used by the Egyptians for adornment, medicinal and cosmetic purposes. In fact, the very first eye shadow was made with powdered lapis.
Lapis Lazuli in the Bible
The Bible mentions lapis lazuli in Exodus 28 as one of 12 stones representing the tribes of Israel on the high priest’s breastplate. It is also mentioned in teachings about wisdom: “But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell? No mortal comprehends its worth; it cannot be found in the land of the living. The deep says, ‘It is not in me’; the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’ It cannot be bought with the finest gold, nor can its price be weighed out in silver. It cannot be bought with the gold of Ophir, with precious onyx or lapis lazuli” (Job 28:12-16 NIV).
