These mines have produced 95% of all the Lapis Lazuli that has ever been produced. From there the stone was transported on the ancient silk route to Europe.

Lapis Lazuli is a metamorphic rock containing lazurite. It also frequently contains specks of calcite and iron pyrites. These specks of sparkling pyrite were traditionally said to represent the stars and planets. While the deep blue of Lapis Lazuli represented the celestial night sky. The name ‘Lapis’ derives from Latin word lapis meaning stone. While the word ‘Lazuli’ derives from the Persian word lazhward meaning blue.
