See another Lapis Lazuli Rosary (A grade)on #36, Designer Collection 8.
Lapis Lazuli is a complex stone composed of 3 minerals: Lazurite (Royal to Navy blue), Pyrite (also known as "fool's gold"), and Calcite (usually white but may be yellow or gray). The proportion of these three minerals is part of what determines it's quality. Lazurite should be predominant and while large areas of Calcite or Pyrite detract from its value, small flecks or veins, particularly of Pyrite, often enhance its value. Since ancient times, Lapis Lazuli has been the stone of Royalty, perhaps best known for its use in the funeral mask of Egyptian Pharoah Tutahnkamun, it was also described as part of the breastplate of Aaron in the Old Testament. Lapis Lazuli is a recognized birthstone for both September and December.
