At Smyks we offer a wide range of beads for jewelry made of genuine lapis lazuli. See the complete assortment below.
Lapis lazuli is known for its intense blue colour and has been a highly appreciated semi-precious stone for thousands of year because of this quality. Tutankhamun had his death mask made of this stone, and during the Renaissance and the Baroque period it played a major role, as its pigment were used to colour for example the clothes of the Virgin Mary or the headscarf of the “Girl with the Pearl Earring” in Johannes Vermeer’s famous painting.
