Your designs will light up like the night sky when you use the lapis lazuli 8mm round beads from Dakota Stones. Available by the strand, these beads are perfectly round and feature dark blue color accented by small pin-points of gold glitter. 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 beads to create an elegant necklace and bracelet set.
