The 3/4" lazurite crystal on this specimen is sharply formed and well defined. The dark royal blue color is especially rich, making the crystal stand out really nicely against the specimen's white marble matrix. This is a highly representative specimen from this ancient Afghani locality. Lazurite crystals are rare, but the nearly inaccessible area around Badakhshan, Nooristan Valley, Afghanistan is noted for occasionally producing sharp crystals of royal blue lazurite (also known as lapis lazuli) on white marble.
