The Pigment Genuine Lapis Lazuli by Nila Colori is prepared with pure Lapis Lazuli mineral, chemically a sodium polisulfide and aluminosilicate. This is probably the most famous historical pigment. Its name means “lazuli stone”, in which the term “lazuli” derives from medieval Latin “lazulum”, meaning “sky“, and derives from the Persian “lazward” and Sanskrit “rajavarta”, i.e. “of the king“. From the term “lazulum” comes “azure”. It was also called “ultramarine” because of the geographical origin of this mineral, mainly from Afghanistan, country beyond the Mediterranean Sea.
