The present study on the semi-precious stone lapis lazuli contains a collection of data previously published in scientific reports, though often not written with archaeological research in mind. My main goal has been to collect the information available on various aspects on the lapis lazuli industry, to give guidance on the analysis of ancient workmanship and generally trace the development of this industry as a whole, including a survey of lapis lazuli deposits.
