I have had this lovely Lapis Lazuli Pendant since the mid 1980's.
Set in an oval deep Sterling Silver (marked 925) hand beaten frame with a hoop and ball decoration, the semi precious stone is highly polished and cabochon cut.
Displaying all the Hallmarks of a good Lapis stone..even deep intense blue color and sparkling gold highlights..it measures 1" x 1" excluding the large bale and is in very good Vintage condition.
Afghanistan has been the main source of Lapis since the early days of Egypt and it was used for the eye brows on the funeral mask of Tutankhamun.
