This collection of 11 pieces of superbly polished Lapis Lazuli Tongues must be seen to be appreciated; they certainly belong in your jewellery-making collection box – perfect for use in ethnic-style tribal or statement jewellery.
Lapis Lazuli has been 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 a highly spiritual stone, believed to balance energy within the body – in particular, the throat, crown and brow chakras. The purists also believe it will enlighten ones internal and external power and will purify the mind and thinking capacities.
The majority of the world’s Lapis comes from northern Afghanistan – and has been a prized part of our collection for many years – and we have lots of it!!
The beads in this collection have been heavily discounted and now work out to cost roughly $7.00 each and weigh in at 51 grams. They are often used for ethnic-style tribal necklaces, bracelets, anklets and other jewellery-making projects.
All our Lapis Lazuli Tongues contain a decent 1.5-2mm centre-drill hole which is suitable for threading with head pins, round leather, tigertail or craftline (similar to fishing line).
The accompanying photos illustrate what to expect in your order. But please be mindful that from time to time there may be some minor variations depending on availability.
