Lapis Lazuli Cubed Nugget Beads 10-11mm Blue Beads 16 Inch Strand
Gorgeous natural Lapis Lazuli cubed nugget beads. These beads are fairly consistent in size with small variances. The size is perfect, not too large and not too small for your jewelry designs. The coloring is very predominantly blue with a good amount of pyrite. I am offering these beads in a smaller and rounder size as well.
Although I was told these beads are not dyed I believe that they are. Irregardless, they are beautiful.
Some strands are darker than others. Please let me know if you have a preference.
The great majority of the world's Lapis Lazuli is mined in Afghanistan. Their president has just banned the export of this beautiful stone.
Approximately 10-11mm (hole to hole) x 8mm-9mm, hole 1.4mm
