Lapis is a relatively rare semi-precious stone native to Afghanistan that has been prized since antiquity for its intense blue color. Lapis is the Latin word for "stone" and lazuli is the genitive form of the Medieval Latin lazulum, which is taken from the Arabian lāzaward, meaning "heaven" or "sky," since the sky is blue; therefore, it is the "stone of heaven."
