Gemstone Beads, Lapiz Lazuli, Natural, Round, Deep Blue, 10mm

These 10mm, Natural, Deep Blue, Round, Lapis Lazuli, Gemstone Beads have a fine, deep blue color with some pyrite and calcite inclusions. Lapis Lazuli is a mixture of Calcite, Lazurite and specks of Pyrite.

Dubbed the "Sapphire" of classical times, it has always been a popular stone on account of its deep blue color.

When it is flecked with white, it is perfectly complemented by Silver and Turquoise for a Southwestern look. If it has brassy specks, it is regal with Gold.

Lapis also has darker regions that can be accented when strung with Black Onyx or Metal Beads. For a harmonious combination, mix Lapis Lazuli with Purple Amethyst, and for a dazzling look, use it in a design with Coral or Carnelian Gemstone Beads.

Deep Blue Lapis Lazuli characteristically has either whitish or yellowish matrix or feathering. When it is flecked with white, it is perfectly complemented by silver and turquoise for a Southwestern look. If it has brassy specks, it is regal with gold.

Lapis Lazuli is one of the oldest opaque gemstones in history, more than 6,500 years! This deep blue stone includes tiny flecks of mica, like a night sky full of stars. Its most well-known source is deep in the mountains of modern Afghanistan.

In Roman times, Lapis Lazuli was considered a powerful aphrodisiac while Lapis powder was used extensively by Roman, Persian and Chinese women to paint their eyebrows. Lapis beads have been found at neolithic burial sites and was also used in the funeral mask of Tutankhamun. Lapis is typically found in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Chile, Russia and China.

The Sumerians believed that the spirit of their gods lived within the stone, while the ancient Egyptians saw it as a symbol of the night sky. Since the earliest of times, Lapis Lazuli has been associated with strength and courage, royalty and wisdom, intellect and truth.

From antiquity, Lapis Lazuli has been worn in the belief that it will ward off evil. In ancient Egypt, it was powdered and worn about the eyes to improve eyesight. Today, it is considered by some to be an aid to balancing the brow chakra (which influences vision and hearing). Imbalances of the brow (or blue) chakra are said to cause headaches, anxiety and disorders of the skin.

Lapis lazuli sits in the middle of the Mohs Hardness Scale, making it harder than a range of other popular stones, yet softer than many transparent faceted gems. Lapis is sensitive to pressure, heat and (with its calcite content) household cleaners and abrasives.

Clean Lapis Lazuli with lukewarm soapy water; test dyed materials to see how they react to water before cleaning. Wipe them with a soft cloth and store dry, in a separate bag or box where it can neither scratch nor be scratched by other jewelry. Avoid ultrasound and steam cleaners!
