Lapis lazuli has been mined in the Andes Mountains, at the headwaters of the Tascadero River since 1905.  Deposits are located near the border between Chile and Argentina, in the Coquimbo Region of Chile around the 11,500 ft.  This material is composed of blue lazurite, together with white wollastonite, white calcite, blue hauyne, gold-colored pyrite, and minor quantities of other minerals.


A few years back, Robert Michael acquired the complete remaining supply of Lapis-bearing material from the owner of one of a few local mines.  Their deposit had been mined out, so they decided to liquidate their inventory.  We cut one piece of the material into this 22x20mm triangle-shaped Cabochon set in a Sterling Silver Pendant.   


For this Pendant, we recommend an 18” or 20” Light Rope Sterling Silver Chain, #1120.


We'll be shipping this item in a very attractive Gift Box and include a matching tote bag and crinkled paper. You'll be ready to present this gift in only a few minutes. All buttoned up, pretty, and sophisticated.
