Hole size 1mm. Approximately 14 beads in 8" strand.
Lapis Lazuli has been prized throughout history for its beautiful blue hue and the valuable ultramarine pigment derived from the powdered stone. This celestial blue is often considered the color of royalty and honor, and is a universal symbol of wisdom, truth, and the cosmos.
Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue." It is formed from multiple minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite, and is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks (pyrites). Lapis is mainly is mined in Afghanistan and in the San Gabriel Mountains of California. As in most semiprecious gemstones, colors, bead sizes, and shapes can vary slightly due to differences in natural material, manufacturing, and cutting methods.
Our luxurious 10x14mm flattened oval beads showcase the intense dark blue, golden inclusions, and slightly variegated tones of the best lapis grades.
