Art History

Ancient Egyptian craftsmen were fortunate to have access to a wide array of materials that were used in jewelry making. Gold, silver, and semiprecious stones such as turquoise, carnelian, amethyst, and feldspar were found in Egypt and Sinai. The only commonly used gemstone that had to be imported was lapis lazuli, which originated in Afghanistan and traveled along trade routes through the ancient Near East to Egypt.
