This is where I do all my soldering/any work involving heat🔥. The big square is a soldering sheet, on top of it I have a soldering block at the bottom and charcoal blocks at the top. You can also see my tweezers and my third hand. A third hand is a pair of reverse action tweezers which is mounted, it can be positioned to hold your work while you apply heat.
This deep cobalt blue colour was a spiritual contrast to Egypt's dry, arid desert lands. In ancient Persia and pre-Columbian America, it was a symbol of the starry night. Buddhist recommended lapis as a stone to bring inner peace and freedom from negative thought.
Revered for years for its deep blue colour associated with royalty and honour. Used in frescoes and oil paintings of the Renaissance, reflective of the night sky. The lapis lazuli, flecked with gold pyrite is a gemstone that's been in trend for 6500 years now.
