September Birthstone: Lapis

Standard

Lapis, the birthstone of September babies, is as rich in history as it is in color. Known for its deep blue shade, lapis has been used by all the great ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Persians, and Greeks. It was among the first gemstones to be worn as jewelry and can also be found in ancient figurines and grave décor.

About Quarter Moon Imports

Quarter Moon Imports is a little clothing, jewelry & gift shop located in a 1940's stone cottage at Lake Ella in Tallahassee Florida. We've been here since 1989. Our shop is an eclectic mix of goods with a decidedly bohemian flair. Many of our gifts and jewelry are fair trade products. We also carry eco- friendly products and locally crafted soaps and gifts. We like being part of the local business community and especially love being at Lake Ella along with Black Dog Cafe, Joe's Bike Shop, Remember When Vintage, Glasswork by Susan, Panhandler's Kitchen Supply, Mickey's Lakeside Cafe and the rest. Our greatest hope is that you find us to be a friendly and welcoming place in the community. At the end of the day, that's what really matters.
