About: Lapis Lazuli
Lazurite (Lapis Lazuli) is one of the members of the Feldspathoid group of minerals that includes Cancrinite, Haüyne, Lazurite, Leucite, Nepheline and Sodalite. Minerals with chemistries that are close to those of the alkalai Feldspars, but are poor in silica (SiO2) content, are called Feldspathoids. Lazurite is also a member of the Sodalite group of minerals that includes Hackmanite, Haüyne and Tugtupite. Lazurite could be considered a Sulphur rich form of Haüyne. Lazurite crystals are rarely found however. It is more commonly found combined with other minerals as a rock called Lapis Lazuli, or just Lapis. Lazurite and Lapis are two separate things; Lazurite is a mineral and Lapis Lazuli is a rock composed of many different minerals; but we are grouping them together on this page since they are so closely related. Lapis stone contains mostly massive forms of Lazurite combined with Haüyne, Sodalite, Nosean, (all members of the Sodalite group of minerals) and white Calcite, Pyrite, and other minerals. The Calcite and Pyrite give Lapis a very attractive look and the presence of Pyrite distinguises Lapis from its blue cousin – Sodalite rock, which lacks Pyrite.

The name Lazurite is often confused with another blue mineral, the phosphate mineral Lazulite. Although the names are similar, their crystal habit is very different. Lazurite is very rarely found as distinct crystals and Luzulite has good crystal habit and vitreous luster. The carbonate mineral Azurite has a very similar color to Lazurite but is associated with the green carbonate mineral Malachite and reacts to acids.

Lapis Lazuli Stone has been mined for centuries from a source still in use today in the remote mountain valley of Kokcha, Afghanistan. Although there are other sources of Lapis worldwide, Afghanistan still produces the finest quality material.

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

Like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul.

Authorities in our business will tell in no uncertain terms that Lorem Ipsum is that huge, huge no no to forswear forever. Not so fast, I'd say, there are some redeeming factors in favor of greeking text, as its use is merely the symptom of a worse problem to take into consideration.

Safe delivery, ensures the movement of goods in a short time.

You begin with a text, you sculpt information, you chisel away what's not needed, you come to the point, make things clear, add value, you're a content person, you like words. Design is no afterthought, far from it, but it comes in a deserved second. Anyway, you still use Lorem Ipsum and rightly so, as it will always have a place in the web workers toolbox, as things happen, not always the way you like it, not always in the preferred order. Even if your less into design and more into content strategy you may find some redeeming value with, wait for it, dummy copy, no less.
