 A very fine necklace featuring the large ancient lapis lazuli cylindrical beads from Peru, ancient Roman carnelian beads and antique gold wax beads from Afghanistan make this a multicultural stunner.

The Chavín were a civilization that developed in the northern Andean highlands of Peru from 900 BC to 200 BC.[1][2] The Chavin were located in the Mosna Valley where the Mosna and Huachecsa rivers merge. This area is 3150 meters above sea level and encompasses the quechua, jalca, and puna life zones.

The most well-known archaeological ruin of the Chavín era is Chavín de Huántar, located in the Andean highlands north of Lima. It is believed to have been built around 900 BC and was the religious center of the Chavin people. It is now a UNESCO world heritage site.
