Blue is rarely present in nature and, for humanity, is a very contemporary color. So much so that it was the last primary color for which people made pigments, 14,000 years after yellow and red! Lapis was that blue, an Afghani semi precious stone, which was adored by Egyptians for its bright blue hue. Scholars that they were, they produced chemical combinations with lapis to make other tones and shades of blue. Blue is now used in elegant, preserved roses [insert product page hyperlink] for weddings, events and luxury occasions.
A Blue History
These magnificent, alluring dyes were traded by the Egyptians ‘worldwide’ via the Persians, Mesoamericans and Romans. Due to the rareness of lapis the dyes were expensive and purchased by the high class nobles and royalty. This meant blue was rare and revered for centuries.

Egyptians also connected blue to Amun, the King of Gods, who would turn blue to fly invisibly across the sky. The Hindu god Vishnu is blue to represent his immeasurable, infinite force. 12th century Roman Catholic Church leaders required the Virgin Mary be painted with the most expensive pigment available at the time i.e. ultramarine. The reasons given are: to show her purity, to show she is like an Empress (as blue was used by Royalty in the Byzantine era) or because it was expensive.
Blue is also embodied in protective talismans which are intended to ward off evil and attract good luck in Turkey, Greece, Pakistan, and Iran.
