This is Lapis Lazuli

Recommended Posts

It is mentioned a dozen times in the books but I've never seen it before. I thought others would be interested too. It's usually used in ornaments and jewelry.

And, Thanks!  I, for one, enjoy these little tidbits of real-life history.  They're interesting, and they help us appreciate the depth of GRRM's research and knowledge.

The gem is a little detail meant to enhance the realism of the story.  I would not believe it is anyway connected to the Targaryens just because of the color.

Yes, so you didn't know that Lapis Lazulis was real?

It's quite precious as well. In ancient times it was used for blue pigment.
