The sharp crystals on this lazurite (lapis lazuli) are colored a deep azure-blue color, and they are perched aesthetically on a white marble matrix. The specimen comes from the ancient and historic Afghani locality of Ladjuar Medam, which has been mined continuously for over 7 centuries. The color contrast is striking, and the crystal form is superb. This is a fine piece, both for the size and sharpness of the crystal, as well as the overall aesthetics.
