Hand cut and polished teardrop shaped Lapis lazuli natural stone Earrings!
About the Stone: Lapis Lazuli is one of the most sought after stones in use since man's history began. It's deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth. In ancient times Lapis Lazuli was most highly regarded because of its beautiful color and the valuable ultramarine dye derived from it. Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue."
It is rock formed by multiple minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite, and is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks (pyrites). Lapis Lazuli was among the most highly prized tribute paid to Egypt, obtained from the oldest mines in the world, worked from around 4000 B.C. and still in use today. Referenced in the Old Testament as sapphire (unknown in that part of the ancient world), Lapis Lazuli is most likely the fifth stone in the original breastplate of the High Priest, as well as those of later times.
Description: These are custom cut and shaped by hand into large natural pear-shaped Lapis Lazuli beads, each with flecks of gold pyrite occurring naturally on each stone revealing the depth and variations of color which makes lapis such a prized stone.
