In Latin, lapis means “stone”; lazuli stems from the Persian word lazuward, which means “sky blue.” Thus lapis lazuli simply means “sky blue stone.” For a long time, this was the sole source of lightfast blue pigments and gemstones, and the semiprecious stone was traded at a higher price than gold. Small amounts of it suffice to produce a radiant white that defies linguistic description. This white, manufactured with ground lapis lazuli from Afghanistan, is spacious, fresh, and optimistic.
