This collection contains just under 100 quaint little lapis lazuli ovals that could easily belong in a beaders collection.    

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!!   

The beads are often used in the assembly of ethnic-style tribal necklaces, bracelets, anklets, earrings and other jewellery-making projects.

All our lapis lazuli bicones beads contain a decent 1mm centre-drill hole which is suitable for threading with 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.
