December 4th, 2014 ~ While lying in bed, awake waaaay too early in the morning, I was thinking about the mp3 files I had been listening to last night from the Dragon Skulls Workshop I had recently done via distance option. I was too tired to listen to all of the recordings last night and I intended to listen to the rest of them today. Suddenly a name popped into my mind — Zanora — which I have not, to the best of my knowledge, ever heard of before. I knew instinctively that this was the name of my next Dragon Skull, which I hadn’t even decided upon, let alone purchased, and that “she” is a Lapis Lazuli Dragon Skull (and that I also have her permission to share her name publicly). 🙂
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been browsing online, comparing prices, carving styles, sizes and crystal types available for Dragon Skulls but hadn’t been able to come to a firm decision about what type of crystal or what sized skull I wanted (price being a big determining factor) so I just let the idea go for a while. But after being given the name this morning I decided to have another look and went to the same website I’d bought Ouromundi from, even though last time I looked they still only had another Black Obsidian Dragon Skull. Well, what a surprise!! There was a beautiful blue Lapis Lazuli Dragon Skull for a very good price …so I bought her! Gotta love synchronicity! 😉 Can’t wait for Zanora to finally arrive home! 😀 ❤
I assume I’ll get the skull shown in the photo below, but if not, I hope she’s just as beautiful as this one!
Here are the details from the website:
Lapis Lazuli Carving Dimensions: 4.2″ long x 2.1″ x 2.1″
Handcrafted from natural lapis lazuli rough mined at Badakshan, Afghanistan. This unique carving of natural lapis lazuli has beautiful deep blue natural color. It was carved & polished by hand! The natural blue color is very rich with layers and veinlets of white calcite and wonderful golden pyrite flecks within the rich blue lapis (all 100% natural color).
December 11th, 2014 ~ She’s arrived!!! Yay! 😀 ❤ 😀 So naturally I had to take photos of her as the photo above just doesn’t do her justice! A flash was used in the first 4 photos but the last three are just natural light on a rainy day. Click on each photo to enlarge — the tiny flecks of pyrite are quite magickal. 🙂
