Lapis 8mm Beads
Lapis lazuli is one of the most ancient of all ornamental stones. Most of the lapis of the ancient world came from the mines of Afghanistan, active since 7500BCE and still producing this striking, almost impossibly blue stone today.
With its vivid celestial color, lapis has been valued since antiquity as a stone of wisdom, inspiration and truth. Its throat chakra association makes it an excellent choice for people working in communications, research or any field requiring strong problem-solving skills.
Each strand is sold separately and measures approximately 15 inches long. The beads are about 8mm in diameter, with roughly 48 beads per strand and 24 per half strand.
These are available by both the full strand and the half strand.
- Making a bracelet? Purchase a half strand.
- A necklace? For a 16" finished length, a single full strand will do. If you want to go longer, consider one full and one half strand.
- Mala? You will need two full strands and one half strand, and will have a few beads left over.
