Lapis Dragon Pendant
This sterling silver dragon holds a genuine Lapis stone and is in a flight pose. Your chain or jewellery cording slides through his wings. Approximately 1.5".
Lapis is a mixture of at least three minerals: lazurite, calcite & pyrite. Ground Lapis was the secret of the blue in ultramarine, the pigment which painters used to paint the sea and the sky until the nineteenth century. It was also ground up along with Malachite and used as eye makeup in Ancient Egypt. It was said to impart ancient knowledge, and the wisdom to use it and to enhance one's awareness, insight and intellect.
