LAPIS LAZULI BEADS: The name derives from the Latin “Lapis” meaning stone and from the Arabic “Azul” meaning blue. In Egypt, this stone was linked to the goddess Isis cult, and was used for the manufacture of seals. The Romans held it as a powerful aphrodisiac. In the middle Ages, it was believed that it assured good health to the limbs, and it sheltered the soul from error, lust and fear.
