These Quality Lapis Briolettes beads are:
Quantity: Sixty nine (69) beads, about 8″ long
Shape: Faceted teardrop briolette shape
Weight: 326ct (that’s a lot!)
Quality: I think I will have to give these Quality Lapis Briolettes beads about an A grade. Although my supplier called them AAA superfine, I do not, but the reasons are simple. These are still great stones – but they are a bit too dark for me to call them AAA – I like to see a more vibrant blue for a higher quality and these are a bit more navy. They also have some white & sparkling pyrite in there, but not enough to change the overall color of the strand. On the other hand, these bad boys are a great size and generally consistent across the strand! The cut is quite good without being superb, and they are simply a solid Lapis strand.
Lapis Lazuli is an incredibly powerful, ancient stone. It is believed to enhance the energies of love, powers, protection & healing.
