Natural Lapis Lazuli tumbled stone circularly wrapped in 14k gold plated silver flat wire. We have attached a matching jump ring through the bail to give you an option for inserting a larger size chain. The lapis stone is held securely in the wire wrap even though the wrap is slightly loose.
The Lapis Lazuli stone is from Afghanistan and has a polished luster. Weighs just under or over one ounce and measures between 1.28 inches and 1.58 inches. The best Lapis Lazuli comes from mines in Afghanistan, which is no longer a source for import. Nice addition to a collection of lapis lazuli jewelry. Nice gift for a man as it is substantial enough.
Lapis Lazuli meaning:
Lapis is often mistaken for Sodalite. That is because Lapis is largely comprised of sodalite. The difference is that it also contains lazurite, calcite and pyrite. Lapis needs to be exposed to midday sun for 20 minutes once a month. Either midday sun or a full moon for 20 minutes (or longer). Placing Lapis under a pyramid-shape keeps it energized.
