Lapis Lazuli Collar Necklace
A serious statement piece, this collar necklace is fashioned from Lapis Lazuli cut and polished by Alison Jean Cole. Strung along an antique brass chain, this necklace is certain to generate attention.
Lapis Lazuli is an incredible material that has been traded since the days of the ancients. The mines in the Sar-i-Sang region of Afghanistan have been operating for perhaps a millenia. The mines dig into a metamorphic layer that was once limestone. Lazurite gives it the blue, calcite imparts the white banding and pyrite (fools gold) gives it that spark.
