What do Egyptian eye-shadow, carved Confucian hair ornaments and Vermeer’s favorite ultramarine pigment have in common? Lapis lazuli, a beautiful ornamental stone, treasured for more than 6,000 years. Like the exquisite lapis sculptures in the National Gem Collection of our National Museum of Natural History, these exclusive jewelry collections are all lapidary masterpieces.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
