Lapis Lazuli Faceted Nugget Beads Blue Beads 8 Inch Loose beads
Gorgeous natural Lapis Lazuli faceted nugget beads. These beads are fairly consistent in size with small variances and the facets are slightly rounded so as not to be sharp. The size is perfect, not too large and not too small for your jewelry designs. These beads are not dyed. The coloring is very predominantly blue with some white and grey pyrite. I see a lot of over dyed lapis so was very pleased to meet up with my vendor yesterday and find so much natural.
The great majority of the world's Lapis Lazuli is mined in Afghanistan. Their president has just banned the export of this beautiful stone.
