Raw black and blue

This is a custom-made necklace for a dear friend, who suffers from chronic illness with inflammation and pain.  I added the lapiz because it is his favourite colour and his favourite number is five, hence the number combinations.  I usually only work in multiples of three.  The raw black cherry amber and raw lapiz lazuli contrast with the polished cognac amber and turquoise chips to give the necklace a feeling of contrasting but complementary textures and colours.

The succinic acid in amber is released when amber is worn next to the skin and thus heated gently to body temperature.  Lapiz is the stone of inner peace, and stress release, bringing objectivity and clarity to the mind and enabling connection with the higher conciousness, and spirituality.

Turquoise is the stone of protection.
