This pendant is a brick-mosaic cut from small pieces of lapis lazuli.
Lapis Lazuli is an incredible material that has been traded since the days of the ancients. It can be found throughout the world but most comes from Russia and Afghanistan. The mines in the Sar-i-Sang region of Afghanistan have been operating for perhaps a millennia where they dig into a metamorphic layer that was once limestone. Lazurite gives it the blue, calcite imparts the white banding and pyrite (fools gold) gives it that spark.
The pendant is an isosceles triangle 59mm at it's hypotenuse. It hangs on a 31" adjustable brass chain. The necklace weighs 24 grams.
