The gemstone lapis lazuli
What makes lapis lazuli so unique is that in addition to the deep blue, it also contains white parts and gold 'flakes'.
How is this possible?
This intriguing interplay of colors arises because lapis lazuli consists of different minerals, namely calcite, pyrite and sodalite. Each mineral contributes to a different color in the stone. The blue is formed by lazurite and sodalite, the white by calcite, and the gold by pyrite.
- Blue: lazurite and sodalite
- White: calcite
- Gold: pyrite
