Mako Shark Tooth and Lapis Lazuli Necklace

 

Lapis: The Stone of Good Luck

 

 

Lapis is considered a rock and not a mineral.

It is a combination of various minerals: primarily lazurite, along with calcite, sodalite and pyrite.

 

  • Lapis lazuli means "blue stone"
  • It was one of the first gemstones in jewelry
  • Ancient Egyptians used it to create blue cosmetics

 

 

  • Delicate polished gemstone chips
  • 18" Necklace
  • 1.125" Fresh Mako tooth focal point
  • Burnished crown for a dramatic effect
  • Finished with a gold tone barrel swivel clasp
  • Gift boxed
  • Handcrafted in our Florida studio

 

 

The Maori word for shark is "Mako".

Polynesians believed the shark to be a spirit animal which guarded them from danger.

Mako teeth are prized by the Maori people and are worn as jewelry by tribal leaders and warriors for protection.

 

You will receive a necklace similar to the photograph.
