Item Description

A beautiful and sculptural specimen of polished solid lazurite "Lapis Lazuli" from the Type Locality in Afghanistan. The gorgeous, azure-blue lazurite is beautifully accented with distinctive parallel veinlets containing bright, brassy, pyrite crystals and calcite. Striking, indeed!! We usually don't purchase these, but we couldn't resist the high quality and color of the lazurite and specimen form. This colorful specimen displays well without any aid and looks great from any side! 532 grams or 1.2 pounds. Large and very high quality for this colorful material.
