The royal blue color of this polished gem lapis lazuli is stunning, and is the likely reason it has been valued as a gemstone for over 5,000 years. On this piece the blue is complimented by bands of golden pyrite and white calcite, which provide a lovely contrast. The bottom is flat so it stands on its own.
