Comment: While I have worked with lapis in jewelry projects, this is the first piece we have taken into our regular stock, mostly because I fell for the golden stars glittering on the as-deep-as-imaginable sky blue; the milky-way shows thanks to a surface with sprinkling of pyrite, a.k.a. 'fool's gold'. See close-ups below, from almost the same zoom spot, but different camera's angle, showing only pure blue, and then, a little moved, sparkling with its own star signs. As the DSEF report shows (XX0001 means it's the first of its kind tested there), this is all-natural, untreated lapis lazuli, the real deal, one of the oldest gemstones on human record. Not dyed, not heated, not surface treated, nor chemically enhanced; such would not pass the world's most diligent treatment-testing at DSEF (next to AGL). During the middle ages, lapis was the most valuable (and only) source of ultra-marine color-concoctions used by the famous artists of the time. Pendant size or bracelet in watch-stile. For the spiritual-minded, lapis lazuli is said to help with many bodily and mental sufferings when worn with skin contact, as we could design in both, pendant and bracelet. For the beauty-minded, but not excluding the spiritual, the hue is on a par with many sapphires though with its own character, plus wide spaces and milky way.
