Found this necklace at an estate sale for $5. Can anyone tell me what type of pendant this is?

    The stone looks like Lapis Lazuli.

    Thank you, do you know much about the Lapis stone?

    Some yes. I know it's been used for jewelry and carvings etc since before the egyptians. I have seen bead work, scarabs and other jewelry from the pharohs times. It's kind of like a blue marble, soft and easier to work. Mainly traded in the middle east.

    Its nice to know some sort of background on the pendent. I got this necklace because I loved the uniqueness about it, and now that I know a bit more about it makes it even better. Thanks again!! So would you say it has some value, I would say it is a vintage item came from an estate sale.

    I know that besited jewels the old Egyptians needed o.a. Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, black kohl. Because they thought that these substances their eyes protected against eye diseases, in particular Trachoma. Already at that time were these substances (colours) even used as eye makeup .Because this little fact is nice to know. As I said Lapis Lazuli is used in jewels or make, for example enamel for instance in old Limoges enamels. That's why this kind of enamel is so sparkling.

    This pendant looks to be carved in the Chinese tradition with fruit, they are still being made in Bali and China.
