Lapis Lazuli Pendant


This dark blue lapis lazuli oval is set in a smooth sterling silver bezel and is crowned by an ornate sterling bail. The polished stone is enriched by a faceted surface that adds light and texture to this opaque stone. Lapis is formed by several minerals including calcite and pyrite - this unique stone is awash with a gold sprinkling of pyrite.

The ancient Egyptian kings loved lapis and they used it extensively for jewelry, cosmetics and burial ornaments. In their dry barren lands, this rich blue color stood out like a beacon against the arid desert hues. They considered the gold flecks to be like stars in the night sky. These look like the milky way!
