Description

Lapis lazuli has been prized for its beauty, its mystical??properties, and its perfection as a pigment. Ancient civilizations believed that the veins of glittering pyrite found in the lapis were actual gold, driving up its value. The stone's expense today, as in the ancient world, results from its hardness, which makes extraction difficult.

Mined in the mountains of South America, this gem-quality pigment is an opulent??blue. There is not a hint of gray in this paint, with a classic, concentrated blue that is??vibrant and light reflective (due to the irregular and angular shape of the pigment particles). A touch of golden pyrite??as an inclusion adds a delightful shimmer. The result??is an elegant, almost three-dimensional effect that is completely different from the predictable blue of synthetic ultramarine pigments. Our Genuine Lapis Lazuli is at least 80% pure gem pigment suspended in a natural binder.

I was disappointed with the colour, it is not like the colour chart at all. Very smooth to apply.
