These stunning 8mm round Afghanistan lapis beads offer a natural (undyed) ultramarine blue with small amounts of calcite and flecks of pyrite. These beads are hugely popular for making malas and rosaries to treasure for a lifetime.
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 few and far between.
