Handmade in NYC with .925 sterling silver crowned lion, deep blue lapis lazuli with a semi-glossy finish. This lapis is not high gloss, but it is not matte either. Most prized of all semi-precious gemstones. Sourced from Afghanistan. This lapis has unique patterns of natural gold (pyrite) and white (calcite) specs of stone throughout in random formations.
No two will look exactly the same as each lapis bead is entirely unique.
If you can only buy one bracelet in your lifetime, I would recommend one made with lapis lazuli because this stone has such a powerful positive energetic impact on the owner! Lapis lazuli is among the most prized semi-precious natural stones mostly found in Afghanistan. It is a mineral combination of lazurite, calcite, sodalite and pyrite. This luxurious blue stone from Afghanistan stimulates enlightenment while releasing stress and bringing deep inner peace. Lapis harmonizes the physical, spiritual, emotional and mental levels. It encourages self-awareness, creativity and self-expression. Lapis bonds relationships and is believed to alleviate migraines and depression.
