Definition of lazuli:
- A mineral of a fine azure- blue color, usually in small rounded masses.

The Baron de Gleichen, who " knew Falc," refers to a talisman of lapis- lazuli which the Due d'Orleans had received in England from " the celebrated Falk Scheck, first Rabbi of the Jews," and says that a certain occultist, Madame de la Croix, imagined she had destroyed it by " the power of prayer."- "Secret Societies And Subversive Movements", Nesta H.
