AAA Grade Lapis Lazuli in 14mm Smooth Round Shape!!! You will receive one 16 inch strand with beads that are 14mm in size and beautifully large and gorgeous.
Lapis lazuli is a rock, not a mineral: whereas a mineral has only one constituent, lapis lazuli is formed from more than one mineral.
The main component of lapis lazuli is lazurite (25% to 40%), a feldspathoid silicate mineral composed of sodium, aluminium, silicon, oxygen, sulfur, and chloride. Its formula is (Na,Ca)8(AlSiO4)6(S,SO4,Cl)1-2. Most lapis lazuli also contains calcite (white), sodalite (blue), and pyrite (metallic yellow). Other possible constituents are augite, diopside, enstatite, mica, hauynite, hornblende, and nosean. Some contain trace amounts of the sulfur rich lollingite variety geyerite.
Lapis lazuli usually occurs in crystalline marble as a result of contact metamorphism.

Please note that because of variations with natural gemstones, you beads or stones may look different. Gemstones are not flawless in nature. There can be natural markings and inclusions on stones. The highest graded diamond is not flawless. If you want flawless, please purchase glass beads. You might not receive the exact pictured strand. I also do my best to include an approximate bead length and bead count, however, these are not exact. Some strands might be slightly shorter and some might be longer. That is just the nature of strands of beads.
