Already since about 7,000 years it has been used in antique jewellery. A sensational lapis lazuli art in the Roman church ‚Il Gesù‘ can be marvelled. There the altar the Saint Ignatius-chapel is decorated with lapis lazuli columns and a lapis blue globe set in gold. Not so far from us, in the Potsdam ‚orangery castle‘, a proper lapis lazuli room with exuberant decorated pieces of furniture and pieces of jewellery originated in the 19th century. Still today, antique jewellery with and from (old) lapis lazuli pleases us above all as a necklace, ring or eye-catcher in cuff links.
