Double flared plugs with convex faces carved from Lapis Lazuli.

I work high grade Lapis which has a vibrant blue to deep blue coloration with golden pyrite and some sporadic inclusion of white calcite. These pieces have a solid blue face with fine white lines and subtle flecks of pyrite that sparkle when hit with light, the other face is mostly gray and white with flecks of bright blue and gold pyrite.

Lapis Lazuli stone has been prized since antiquity for its intense true blue color, which is very rare in nature. Mined as early as 7th century BC, Lapis can be found in Egyptian and Sumerian artifacts and was ground to make highly desirable "ultramarine" blue paint during the Baroque era.
