"jrom Fran Falcone of Warminister, Pa. Lapis lazuli was named for the deepest azure blue at the very top of the clearest sky. The lovely mineral is rare and comes in various qualities. The best natural samples cost about $5 a gram. When shaped and polished, top quality lapis lazuli is measured in carats. A sizeable stone may cost $20 a carat — while some of the large' precious stones run to thousands of dollars per carat. In the realm of gems, the word "precious" means costly. In this case, we must rate lovely lapis lazuli as a semi precious gem. However, in the past, this azure blue mi- By Gene Fawcette AUTO-COLOff, A NEW TV SIT 1$ CLAIMED TOBETHEFIRSrCOMPlETglY RECEIVER, FOR THE FIRST TIMg, A VIEWER NEVER HAS TOTQUeHTMBSETEXCgPTTO TURN IT ON OR OFF ANP TO CHANGE CHANNEL'S OMITS SYSTEM, ISJJS :«i U3B03S6 / N*oq neral was patiently processed to make a glorious array of artist's paints. These were colors used to create the works we call Old Masters. And they are priceless. Their value to the world is above precious gems or any saleable item you can mention. Lapis lazuli is the mineral lazurite. It contains silica, sodium; aluminum and sulfur and usually traces of several other minerals. It is of medium hardness and opaque with a glossy luster. Its rich peacock hues range from azure through deep violet blue to vivid green. Some samples are flecked with golden pyrite and remind one of a star studded sky. Less valuable samples contain specks of white or greyish calcium. Since ancient times, the biggest and .best samples have come from Afghanistan. To the master painters of Europe, the pigment material in lapis lazuli was worth its weight in gold. They renamed it ultramarine because it reached them from over the sea. And those old masters transformed the heavenly blue "stone into priceless works of art. The patient processing was itself a, line art and each master used his own secrets to prepare it. Some of the vivid blue and green pig' ments were extracted by pulverizing. Some of the fine or coarse powders were baked to ashes. The color of the ashes depended upon the heat of the crucibles, how long they were allowed to cool plus other subtle secrets. The prepared pigments were mixed with special oils to create an array of luminous paints that have endured through tna centuries. When you feast your eyes on a genuine Old Master, you see nature's semi - precious lapis lazuli made priceless by human artists. The vivid blue and green pigments were blended to portray the true colors of nature, as seen by the gifted eye of the artist. Darker ashes were processed for a multitude of browns, golds and reds. For luminous skin tones, the master painters used the. palest ashes from lapis lazuli — alias ultramarine. Deposits of this once precious mineral are found in Chile, Colorado and a fe\|r other places. But the best samples of unblemished blu« still come from Afghanistan Meantime, wouldn't yoti know, our clever chemist^ have copied the multicolored pigment in nature's lazurita. Nowadays, many artists colors are made from this synthetic chemical. It takes aft art expert to tell the difference. Time may or may ncfc prove that the natural pigment was superior. * Send questions on postal? card to Ask Andy, P.O. Box- 2406, Phoenix, Ariz., 85002. ' LITTLE PEOPLE'S PUZZLE If "New"
