These earrings are cut from a lapis lazuli from Afghanistan.
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 Chile 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 pyramids are equilateral triangles of 33mm each side and hand on 14k gold hammered hoops that have a diameter of 35mm or 1 3/8 inches.
