Sola Cube - Lapis Lazuli
Showcasing the beauty and wonder of nature
3.8 billion years ago life began on earth. And over millions of years multicellular life evolved into land plants and forests. The colors and shapes of flowers, fruits and seeds all have unique purposes and are as beautiful as they are functional.
Intent on showcasing the wonder and beauty of mother nature, Koichi Yoshimura developed a way to exquisitely preserve plants in acrylic cubes. He called them “Sola Cubes.”
Each Sola Cube is handmade by Japanese craftsmen and contain a real plant.
Lapis lazuli is December’s birthstone. It has been used for this reason since far back in history, and there have been excavations of ancient Egyptian influential figures who applied it as a decoration. Also, the painter Vermeer was famous for making use of “ultramarine,” a pigment produced by smashing and refining the mineral.
