Stoneground Genuine Lapis Lazuli Watercolour

One of the most famous blue stones in art, Lapis Lazuli has been famously used as an ornamental stone, for jewelry, personal adornment, and pigment for over 6000 years. Prohibitively expensive, coveted by royalty, and used in some of the most famous paintings on earth, Lapis Lazuli’s famous blue hue was finally made into the much more affordable Ultramarine Blue pigment so popular among artists today.

Paint Maker’s Notes: Stoneground Lapis Lazuli pigment is ethically sourced from Afghanistan. It is a combination of fine and coarse lazurite particles (lazurite being the main component giving the stone its famous celestial blue colouring).
