Now if you’re into nothing but a load of 2x2mm Lapis Lazuli tube stubbies – you’ve come to the right place.
Here we have a highly collectible and rare hank of 10 strands of these delicious vivid blue Lapis Lazuli beads – and would appeal to serious beaders – and perfect to use in ethnic-style tribal jewellery – inspired by the nomadic people of the Middle East.
Each strand measures roughly 14-16 inches in length) and contains 150 per strand.
More than 1500 individual beads – each piece different from the other, make up this extraordinary blend of tube-shaped rocailles.
Just imagine two strands of A-Grade Lapis Lazuli from deposits throughout Afghanistan - a prized semi-precious stone since antiquity – partly because of its natural beauty, its ‘intense blue colour, and tiny gold pyrite flecks sprinkled throughout, plus its use in art and jewellery – but also for its metaphysical healing properties.
Since time immemorial, Lapis Lazuli has been regarded as a highly spiritual stone, believed to balance energy within the body – in particular, the throat, crown, and brow chakras.
The entire collection will provide exciting jewellery prospects – and are the ideal ingredients to make look-again necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
The collection weighs in at 25 grams. Please bear in mind the accompanying photos have been enlarged to show greater detail.
