Here we have an unusual, but quite unique collection of five chunky, but slender two and three-hole lapis lazuli tube beads from Afghanistan.

These pieces of unpolished lapis could make a worthy addition to your growing collection of beads – and provide the challenge of incorporating them into ethnic-style, tribal or statement jewellery creations.    

Lapis lazuli has been a prized semi-precious stone since antiquity – partly because of its natural beauty, intense blue colour, and tiny gold pyrite flecks sprinkled throughout, and 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 purists also think it will enlighten one's 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!!   

All our lapis lazuli beads contain a decent 1-2mm centre-drill hole which is suitable for threading with round leather, Tigertail, or Craftline (similar to fishing line).  

Please note – while some images have been enlarged to show detail, colours may vary slightly due to lighting variants.
