Lapis Faceted Teardrop
6x8mm Center Drilled Drop IHD: 0.33mm
The story of Lapis is 9,000 years old! In medieval times, it was ground into powder and then made into the most glorious of blue paints reserved for use in religious paintings. Lapis is the alternative to Sapphire for September’s birthstone.
Like all fine gemstones, the holes are very small. For wire-wrapping, 26-28 gauge will work. For knotting use Griffin #2. For stringing wire, Soft Touch in .010mm. For a needle, a Flexible Eye is the best choice.
Mined in Afghanistan. Hand cut in India by master gem cutters. As these are natural stones, the hole size and color may vary from one to another. We will do our best to match pairs for earrings.
