Lapis Lazuli Earrings
Description: Our sixth chakra earrings are that rare, exceptional blue that has made lapis sought after throughout history. Lapis is characterized by its deep blue color with flecks of golden pyrite. When I think of lapis, I am reminded of a night sky with tiny golden stars. Lapis Lazuli is such an intense blue that it is ground into dust and added to a binder to produce a paint color known as ultramarine. As a gemstone, lapis was treasured by the ancient Egyptians among numerous others cultures, in fact, in 1720, a Russian palace was built for Catherine the First, which included a ballroom with solid lapis walls. We have paired our lapis earrings with turquoise from the famous and now defunct Sleeping Beauty mine.
