The cases of the set are decorated by a stone-cutting master with natural lazurite. One of the brightest stones in mineralogy. Lazurite is often called the “heavenly stone” because it is fabulously beautiful and resembles the azure of a sunny clear sky. The name of the stone is translated as the “blue” (from Arabic “azul”). In Persian, lazurite means “blue”. In the Ancient East, it was called “Bukhara lazurite”, “Armenian stone”. A mineral of bright cornflower blue color has a stunning natural shade that shines both in sunlight and in artificial light.
Lazurite items in the Lower and Upper Egypt were widespread in the Gerzeh period (about 3,500 BC) until the period of the Ancient Kingdom (about 2,700 BC). Then was a break, and further – during the Middle Kingdom (around 2,000-1,700 BC). The tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun (mid II millennium BC) contained a lot of lazurite items: gold mask inlaid with lazurite, sarcophagus, gold breast ornaments of the mummy, etc.
In addition to the “heavenly stone” at the top of the set, there is a sculpture of a flying golden eagle. It is a symbol of courage and strength. By the way, the emblem of Egypt is the golden emblem of the eagle with the inscription in Arabic “Arab Republic of Egypt.”
