Wiki: "It (lazulite) is often confused with lazurite, lapis lazuli or azurite". I think some images in this category have a suspicious blue color. It could even be that pre-IMA (1959) lazurite and lapis lazuli names were interchangeable. But nowadays lazurite is the IMA/CNMNC approved name and Lapis lazuli is a mix of minerals, a decorative stone. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 11:45, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
