This is a large sized, oval shaped cabochon-cut natural Lapis Lazuli pendant set in sterling silver! The pendant is a deep, ultramarine blue stone which is accented by tiny pyrite crystals. The setting which surrounds it has an artistic, sunburst-like appearance. It would look ideal on a sterling silver chain or one of our signature faceted strands. (All pendants are sold separately—you may purchase a chain in Sterling Silver Chains, a matching faceted strand in Necklaces & Sets, and contact us to see more of our Lapis Jewelry collection.)

HEALING: Psychic power, truth, royal virtues. El: Wind. Ch: Third eye (6).
Care for gemstones in sterling silver jewelry:
As with all natural stones set in silver, these jewelry pieces should be removed when taking a shower, swimming, or entering a hot springs. Water (especially hot water) can damage natural materials and even cause settings to fail. This is especially true with gemstone rings!
*Though many gems and minerals have historical and cultural associations with healing properties, these items are sold for wear in jewelry, display, study, and collector interest only.
