Lapis Lazuli Pendant

 

 

Tantalising rich blue coloured lapis lazuli pendant crafted in a hand-made sterling silver setting.  This highly polished cabochon was carefully chosen by one of our team and having been crafted into a ladies pendant, it makes an elegant and surprisingly light weight piece of jewellery. 

This ancient blue coloured metamorphic rock is known the world over and has been used as a carving material for thousands of years.  Exceptionally popular in Ancient Egypt especially with the Pharaohs, it featured heavily in the funerary mask of the boy King Tutankhamun.  Some of the mines that were worked thousands of years ago in Afghanistan are still being worked today but the export of this popular stone is limited because of the situation in this part of the world.  The vast majority of lapis lazuli is mined in the northeast of the country in a region called Badakhshan.
