Lapis lazuli is a complex mineral containing a mixture of blue lazurite (sodium aluminium silicate), white calcite (calcium carbonate) and small amounts of other minerals. It occurs in silica- poor igneous rocks and metamorphic limestones and is found in Afghanistan, Siberia, Iran and Chile. It was formerly used as the source of the blue pigment ultramarine.
