The crystals on this lazurite (lapis lazuli) are colored a deep azure-blue color, and are perched aesthetically on a marble matrix. The specimen comes from the ancient and historic Afghanistan locality of Ladjuar Medam, which has been mined continuously for centuries, at least since the times of the earliest pharaohs of Egypt over 5,000 years ago. The color contrast is striking, and the crystal form is great. This is a fine piece, both for the size and sharpness of the main crystal, as well as the overall aesthetics.
