◎Lapis lazuli is one of the seven treasures of Buddhism. The color of lapis lazuli is the body color of the Medicine Buddha in Tibetan Buddhism. Many lapis lazulis on the market are baked and dyed. Soak lapis lazuli in alcohol to know whether it is baked or not. If the color fades, it is dyed. In addition, if the green gold has more gold and more white, it is a relatively inferior product, and vice versa, it is a high-end product.
How to distinguish dyed lapis lazuli?
Many lapis lazulis on the market are baked and dyed. Soak lapis lazuli in alcohol to know whether it is baked or not. If the color fades, it is dyed. And if the lapis lazuli has more gold and more white (more sodalite), it is a defective product with relatively poor quality. On the contrary, if it has less gold and less white, it is a high-grade lapis lazuli. Generally, lapis lazuli is the same as southern red agate. Larger-sized lapis lazuli can achieve less gold and less white. Most lapis lazuli with a size of more than 10mm will have white blocks or white spots on the part of sodalite. .
How should lapis lazuli be maintained? what's taboo
Lapis lazuli should avoid high temperature, because it will affect the luster and color of lapis lazuli under a certain amount of strong light, so you should pay special attention to outdoor activities and try to avoid strong light. In addition, it is not recommended to soak lapis lazuli for a long time (this is different from clams), because the structure of lapis lazuli is loose, and long-term penetration of water will affect the color and aesthetics of lapis lazuli, so lapis lazuli should be taken off when bathing; Avoid acid-base chemicals such as shampoo, shower gel, cosmetics, perfume, etc., which are likely to cause chemical reactions on the surface of lapis lazuli and cause corrosion damage.
