This pendant was created by San Felipe Artist Philip Sanchez.
It features a beautiful bright Denim Lapis stone. The stone sets in a
smooth bezel with a carved sterling silver border.
Lapis Lazuli is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth.
It's marked Sterling and signed
It's 1 1/4" tall, plus 3/8" bail, by 7/8" wide.
Total weight: 9.2 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale.
