Denim Lapis

          A Color Shade Of Blue Lapis Lazuli          

Many people who have heard of blue lapis or lapis lazuli (the same stone) are confused, when they hear the name denim lapis. So what exactly is denim lapis gemstone, is it a synthetic manmade version of lapis lazuli? To start with you should know that the name, denim lapis is used because the color is similar to the color of the denim fabric used to make jeans! Another fact is that, denim lapis is another name for blue lapis lazuli but, only when the lapis has a specific color shade that resembles the denim fabric.

lapis lazuli is not a single mineral, it consists of pyrite, calcite and lazurite as major components. The lazurite is what gives blue lapis the deep blue color. But blue lapis is not naturally found with a uniform blue color. It will often show white patches or streaks. The white element of lapis is brought about by the presence of calcite. The pyrite in lapis lazuli appears as tiny golden specks. Blue lapis is often dyed blue to reduce or elminate the visibility of calcite in the stone.

In general the gemstone world believes that, the presence of calcite reduces the beauty of lapis. This is one of the main reasons for dyeing lapis lazuli stones. We just mentioned that calcite presents itself as patches or streak in blue lapis gems. Some specimens of blue lapis have an interesting presence with reference to calcite. The calcite is uniformly distributed throughout the stone. This does not show up as patches but rather, lightens the saturation of the blue color. The lapis in such cases is referred to as denim lapis, the color of the stone resembles blue denim fabric.

Most of the darker shades of blue lapis lazuli gem stones come from Afghanistan, the ligther denim blue color lapis gems are often mined in Chile. If you wondered whether dark blue lapis or denim lapis has a higher value, we would make the following suggestion. Choose the color of your lapis stone based on your personal liking. Both these lapis colors have their loyal following, so there really is no point in debating which color is better. Just keep in mind that a paler blue shade of lapis will also reduce the visibility of the glittering pyrite specks.

Kaisilver provides blue lapis lazuli gemstones in all shapes and sizes. While we recommend undyed blue lapis lazuli stones, you can request for dyed gems too. We handpick and custom cut all types of gems and welcome even the smallest single piece orders.


Who Is Kaisilver?

Having established itself as the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, Kaisilver now extends it's merchandise line to include gems. While there is no shortage of gem stones in the global market, reliable sources for the retail buyer requirements are not many. Most retail gem dealers work with limited inventories, this reduces buyer options. Another problem with these small dealers is the lack of information and reliability when it comes to gem authenticity and value for money. Kaisilver with it's wide network of gemstone mining and manufacturing resources, is the best source for gems of all types, shapes, sizes and cuts. With a support team that is compromised of jewelry and gemstone experts, the advice and suggestions made by the team relate to your requirements and not to fixed sales targets. The website shows a small sampling of the gems that we offer. You can infact request for just about any gem on the globe. All gems are sourced directly from the source, closely inspected and then custom cut by our expert cutters. With a buyer base that includes fashion models, government officials, casino and resort owners, lawyers, financial experts, students and professors, doctors and surgeons, sportsmen and newsreaders we have become the preferred choice for quality gems and jewelry. By cutting out middlemen commissions and multiple agents, we provide great value for your money. Our large online operation does not stop us from welcoming even the smallest order. Gold and silver jewelry is custom made with equal attention to quality, material and craftsmanship. You can choose from our designs or send us detailed for the style and design that you need.


How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
