Hundreds of delicate lapis and red glass beads are strung together with the larger silver-plated turquoise inlaid central medallions on this beautiful traditional piece.
Lapis is said to promote self awareness, enlightenment and open the mind to all possibilities. It is also considered to be a powerful stone when used for mediation.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue.
Measures about 22 inches in total length. Made in Kathmandu, Nepal.
