A special collection for September's birthstones, Lapis Lazuli and Kyanite.
Lapis lazuli is one of the most prized semi-precious stones. It has been used throughout the centuries for many purposes. Some believe that Cleopatra used crushed lapis as an eye shadow, while later in Italy it was crushed and used as a tint in expensive oil paints.
Kyanite is a blue mineral. Its name is derived from the Greek word kyanos meaning blue. It is a form of aluminum silicate. Kyanite is prized as a collector's mineral for its beautiful color and crystal structures.
