The crystal on this lazurite (lapis lazuli) is colored a deep azure-blue color, and is perched aesthetically on a marble matrix. The specimen comes from the ancient and historic Afghani locality of Ladjuar Medam, which has been mined continuously for over 5,000 years. The color contrast is striking, and the crystal form is superb. This is a very good piece, both for the sharpness of the crystal, as well as the overall aesthetics.
