This magical, 14K gold dragon wraps around a 20 mm lapis lazuli sphere. The dragon is 1 1/2 inches tall and 1 1/4 inches across and a chain slips between the dragon's upswept wings. Lapis, with its specks of gold, has been prized since antiquity. The Egyptians traded with Afghanistan for this gemstone and during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, ultramarine pigment, (ground lapis) was prized by artists and more valuable than gold. The major cave deposits are in Afghanistan but there are also deposits in Siberia Russia and in the Chilean Andes. This item usually ships the same or next business day.
