LAPIS SILVER PENDANT
This is a natural untreated stone mined in Afghanistan.
Set in silver stamped 925
Lapis lazuli has been mined in the Badakhshan province of Afghanistan for 6,500 years.
The finest color is intense blue, lightly dusted with small flecks of golden pyrite. There should be no white calcite veins and the pyrite inclusions should be small. Stones that contain much calcite at all or too much pyrite are not as valuable. Patches of pyrite are an important help in identifying the stone as genuine and do not detract from its value. Often, inferior lapis is dyed to improve its color, but this is often a very dark blue with a noticeable grey cast.
