Hand-carved Lapis Lazuli Frog Amulet
  • Hand-carved Lapis Lazuli Frog Amulet

    $450.00Price

    This little frog was hand-carved by artisans and there is only one available! Mined in Afghanistan since the Neolithic Age, Lapis Lazuli was a popular commodity along ancient trade routes. Fauna carvings, like this one, were popular as amulets in Ancient Egypt as well as various parts of the Middle East. This particular frog carving was chosen for its artistry as well as higher quality lapis lazuli. We chose to leave the stone unpolished to give it a fresh artifact, just pulled from the earth look. The gold bale has been finished by using an ancient technique of hammering and brushed for a smooth, non-polished appearance.
