Lapis lazuli, incorrectly called lazurite in the South, was an ornamental stone found in the Realms.[4][5]

DescriptionEdit

Lapis lazuli was an opaque gem ranging in color from sky blue to dark blue, usually bespeckled with gold.[3] These ornamental stones were typically cut cabochon and polished to enhance the look of the gold flecks.[4][5] Lapis cabochons were often carved into more artistic shapes, such as griffons, scarabs, or unicorns. The deep blue specimens were the most in demand and commanded the highest prices.[5] A typical stone had a base value of 10 gp.[4][2][3]

PowersEdit

A lapis gemstone could be used as substitute for a ruby in the making of a periapt of health.[5] Lapis lazuli was also crushed and used as an ingredient in making potions of heroism and super-heroism.[4][5]
