Lapis Lazuli Is a deep vibrant blue metamorphic rock that is a mixture of minerals with Lazurite as the primary constituent; it sits at a 5-5.5 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. It is used as a semi-precious stone and has a long history of being praised for its intense color.
Natural Citrine is a smoky yellow variety of the Quartz family of crystals. It sits at a 7 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness and takes a great polish.
Most commonly recognized Citrine on the market is heat treated to obtain the vibrant color. It is a common practice for the industry, in polished stones, jewelry, and specimens. The heat treated stones are chemically identical to natural Citrine, and cannot be differentiated with modern testing. Through experience, we have learned that natural Citrine is usually a smoky yellow color, not the vibrant color we recognize today.
This pendant is set in sterling silver, with a faceted Citrine sitting brightly along side a freshwater pearl. The piece is bottomed by faceted lapis lazuli, that adds contrast to the pendant. Overall this pendant can lend a subtle flair to any outfit.
