This handcrafted pendant features three incredible stones; a stunning piece of genuine Kingman Turquoise, a gorgeous rainbow Moonstone, and a beautiful large piece of deep blue and gold Lapis Lazuli. The setting itself has been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) bail, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidized in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton cord, meaning that it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace, and anything in between! Like all my work, this pendant is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!

💎 LAPIS LAZULI LORE:
In ancient times Lapis Lazuli was most highly regarded because of its beautiful colour and the valuable ultramarine dye derived from it. Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue."
Lapis Lazuli is used to stimulate wisdom and good judgment in the practical world. It aids intellectual analysis in archaeologists and historians, problem solving for lawyers, and creates new ideas for inventors and writers.
Lapis Lazuli is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning. It is excellent for enhancing memory.
💎KINGMAN TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
The Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of the oldest and highest producing Turquoise Mines in America. It is located in the Acerbate Mountains 14 miles northwest of Kingman, Arizona in the United States. It was originally discovered well over 1000 years ago and was actually part of a Turquoise boom around 1000 AD when the Mayan culture was using a lot of Turquoise for self adornments and ceremonial items.
💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities.
