Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue semi-precious stone. The primary source of the stone is in Afghanistan. With this tray we have also used the lapis lazuli in conjunction with stainless steel which follows the tradition of combining the stone with silver metals. The rich and powerful have been using this lapis lazuli and silver gilt combination millenniums.
Craftsmen have been creating faux Lapis for hundreds of years, trying to imitate the rich blues and gold of the real stone. They used indigo paint which they sometimes flecked with gold. You can find samples of trinket boxes and mirror frames made this way. Eventually a few very ago I worked out a method of creating a really realistic faux lapis lazuli using photography. As you can see from the mirror, the results are amazing.
The Lapis Lazuli drinks tray is a glamorous contemporary addition to any hallway or living room. Indeed we love to combine it with our Lapis rectangular mirror and our lapis lazuli placemats and coasters. Finally our Lapis Lazuli drinks tray is the perfect birthday Christmas or wedding gift.
Because of its colour, deep blue flecked with gold – the sky and the sun- the early Christians linked it with the heavens. It became known as the Virgin Mary’s stone.
