This is a good specimen of lazurite, commonly known as lapis lazuli, with a very rich royal blue color and sharp crystal form. There are several crystals set in the white marble matrix, making for a dramatic color contrast. This is a very fine example of the crystals from this classic locality, which provided gemstones to the Egyptian pharaohs over 6,000 years ago.
