It is becoming increasingly difficult to find genuine, natural azurite (also known as azurite malachite). much of what is being sold today is a man-made mash-up of rectangular bits of malachite embedded in a lapis mush and then hardened. Blech. Not for me. So where did I find this fabulous azurite, you ask? Vintage shop! how can you tell the difference between the genuine and the man-made? Real azurite looks like tiny worlds with smooth green and turquoise continents floating on a sea of rich deep blue.

This one-of-a-kind necklace is composed orbs of vintage genuine azurite inter-spaced with fine blue lapis lazuli. The azurite beads measure from 11mm to 6mm and are beautifully cut and polished. The lapis is a wonderful royal blue with hints of golden pyrite throughout. The gold beads inter-spaced are 24k gold vermeil (24k over sterling silver) and round matte 14k gold filled.

The necklace measures about 16 1/2" long and has 14k gold filled lobster clasp and gold filled 2 1/4" extender, so you could make it as long as 18 3/4" (approx.).

Matching earrings can be found here:

If you need additional photos, don't hesitate to ask. These photos were taken outdoors using natural light and are excellent representations of the colors (depending, of course, on your monitor settings).
