His emergence as a deity arose about the 4th century AD in India spanning into Nepal and Tibet and devotion became popular in both Hundu and Buddhist religions. One may wish to research further about the history and significance as well as devotional act and offerings, the practice of Puja from the home.
Some characteristics and metaphysical properties of Lapis Lazuli:
Lapis, although technically a rock, is often referred to as gemstone because of its rarity and mystical blue and gold color. It is primarily found in only two places in the world, Afghanistan and Chile. The Afghanistan Lapis being prized as the more beautiful. It is made of mostly lazurite and pyrite. Pyrite giving the stone its golden specks of color.
