Color Story: Lapis Lazuli


There is definitely nothing sad about the bright blue hue of a Lapis Lazuli. If you watch The Vampire Diaries, this is the stone that is said to make them vampires walk freely under the sunshine. Of course its mythical properties are questionable in reality, but the term itself sounds so exotic that one might actually believe it is. It's a rare semi-precious stone mined from Afghanistan and has been used in jewelries, decorative boxes and architectural finishing. If I could transcribe this color into something edible, I would say it reminds me of blueberries.

Ain't it lovely? ;)
