It is very rare to find a piece of lapis lazuli that fractures naturally to present such beautiful and clean tonal variation with golden pyrite inclusions. A true gift of nature!
Left unpolished to maximise its natural beauty, the sides of the stone have been smoothed to a matt finish and it is simply drilled to feed onto the 42cm 18 Carat yellow gold multi strand cable.
The 18 Carat yellow gold necklace has an exceptional soft feel – very tactile – perfectly complementing the stone. The stone measures 42.5mm (width) x 37mm (height) and 62 carats. Necklace length 42cm.
Lapis Lazuli is perhaps the best known gemstone. A mineral prized by royalty and artists throughout history for its vibrant ultramarine colour. Most Lapis Lazuli is mined in Afghanistan, and it comes in many variations, from light to dark shades and including flecks of gold pyrite or calcite which make it resemble the sky with stars or swirling clouds.
