Jewelry Quest Design and Beads presents:
Perfectly colored Ultramarine Lapis Lazuli Focal Beads from Afghanistan measuring 15 to 24mm in size with pyrite and calcite external features in an evenly faceted Nugget, nicely saturated and consistently toned with a slightly waxy luster and smooth polish. These are High Quality Lapis Lazuli Beads originating from Afghanistan, the world's premier Lapis location for over 6 thousand years. AAA in color and cut and a little less calcite - which is my preference - and these World Class Beads would have graded an overall AAA.
No other Stone captures the imagination more than Lapis Lazuli with its long and diverse history. Mined for centuries, revered by Egyptians, and the color of Ultramarine extracted by the Great Masters of Painting during the Renaissance Era, Lapis Lazuli is a Stone Of The Ages.
Low quality Lapis Beads that have been color enhanced with dye are frequently sold in markets today presented as 'Natural' which, in the strictest definition of the word is 'true', because they are, in fact, Lapis. Nevertheless, it creates a somewhat misleading guideline for buyers. Unless stated as 'dyed' or 'not dyed' I always encourage buyers, especially Designers, to ask the specific question: Have these been dyed or color enhanced? Don't just ask 'Are these natural?'
The answer to the dyed question from my supplier on these Beads is 'No' Based on almost 20 years of experience, I concur. They are an incredible Masterpiece Bead of rich natural color.

This listing is for 1 FOCAL BEAD. The shape of each Bead is unique.
