These natural, undyed 10mm round lapis beads are made from rough sourced in Afghanistan. They are a medium-dark blue with visible calcite and pyrite. They are well shaped with a great polish.
With lapis, the fewer the inclusions, the higher the grade. The highest grade lapis has almost no calcite or pyrite and the coveted ultramarine blue color, but these are hard to come by.
