Blue denim lapis necklace, wire wrapped and decorated with pearls and crystals.
Featuring irregular oval 25×10 mm genuine lapis lazuli. The stone has been not treated otherwise than tumbled. It has gold flecks of pyrite (‘fool’s gold’) which make the main difference between lapis and a similar looking sodalite.
Lapis lazuli is a rock with 25% to 40% lazurite, the remainder being calcite, sodalite and pyrite. Lapis from Afghanistan usually has very little calcite. The material from Chili, however, is very distinctive because it usually contains as much as 50% calcite, giving it a mottled blue and white appearance. The lazurite color ranges from a rich electric blue to a dark cobalt blue similar to Afghan material. The color often resembles blue denim and is knows in the trade as ” denim lapis”.
The denim lapis has been wrapped in silver plated wire and decorated with pearls and blue swarovski crystal beads. They make a nice match with the stone.
Total pendant size is 5×2 cm (2x 0.8 inches).
The blue denim lapis necklace will be delivered on a deep blue 3 mm leather chain, available in 3 length sizes (40, 45 and 50 cm).
The leather chain will be finished with a silver colored clasp.
