Like a magical night lit up with stars, these lapis lazuli 4mm faceted roundel beads from Dakota Stones glitter wondrously. Available by the strand, these beads feature a rounded shape and multiple facets cut into the surface for a textured look. The deep blue color of these beads is flecked with gold. Lapis lazuli is a semi-precious stone that contains primarily lazurite, calcite and pyrite. It was among the first gemstones to be worn as jewelry. Mined in Afghanistan and the San Gabriel Mountains in California, lapis lazuli is said to impart ancient knowledge and wisdom to its bearer. You can use these small beads as spacers in necklaces and bracelets.
