This AA-grade lapis lazuli round cabochon is primarily composed of lazurite, chosen carefully to present superior quality with the richest blue color possible and minimizing pyrite and calcite inclusions. This blue gemstone exhibits a deep, rich blue resulting from superior color saturation without dyes or other treatments. This attractive color makes it a great choice for custom pendant designs—combine it with a variety of stones and other design elements to create mixed-stone matched sets including bracelets, earrings and rings.

Lapis lazuli is a metamorphic stone composed of lazurite, pyrite, and calcite. It exhibits a shade of blue resulting from the relative color percentages of these minerals. Represented in folklore as a symbol of the starry night, lapis lazuli is said to stimulate the intellect and support wisdom.

Compare natural lapis lazuli from Rio Grande with other brands and see the quality difference. It's not unusual to find other sellers offering denim-quality lapis with many inclusions at the higher prices of top-quality lapis lazuli.
