Lapis is an intensely blue stone that includes fine flecks of pyrites which glitter like stars in the night sky. It is one of the first stones ever worked into jewelry, so it exists deeply in the threads of many cultures. In the time of the old master painters, ground up lapis was the only source of this intense, ultramarine color in water and oil paints. This stone is regarded to symbolize friendship and truth, and is believed to encourage strong relationships. The best lapis stones are carried down by mule from the mountains of northeast Afghanistan.
Stones are sold in pairs and chips are sold by weight (2 grams).
Please note: All stones are one of a kind and are hand picked for color and quality, then specifically cut and calibrated for nail art.. Once we sell out of a stone restocking it might be impossible and we may never have it again. Also note that the color you see may not be accurate due to the settings on different monitors, cell phones, laptops, etc.
