Here is a nice, large, and sharp lazurite crystal, commonly known as lapis lazuli, with saturated dark blue color and sharp crystal form. The crystal is set in white marble, making for a dramatic color contrast. This is a very fine example of a crystal from this historic locality, which supplied lapis to the Egyptian pharaohs over 5,000 years ago.
