The world's finest lapis lazuli comes from the mines in Sar-e-Song, which have produced gem grade lapis like this fine example for about 7,000 years. This piece weighs 11 ounces, and the color is a rich royal blue, characteristic of the fine gem rough material from this historic area. The piece has been polished into an interesting freeform sculptural shape, then polished to a high luster. There is no damage.
