Sterling Silver Lapis 5mm Round Post Earrings
Lapis lazuli is a stone of friendship and truth. The golden shimmer which gives the stone the magic of a starry sky is pyrite. Lapis was also used by the Old Master painters to make ultramarine oil paint by grounding it into a powder and stirred it together with binding-agents. The name ultramarine means "from beyond the sea," alluding to the trade route from Afghanistan to the Mediterranean and beyond.
