The dark royal blue color of this gem grade specimen of lapis lazuli is superb, the highest grade available. It comes from the world famous deposit in Afghanistan that has been mined for thousands of years, and which produces the fines lapis in the world.  This piece has been shaped and polished into an abstract freeform shape. The golden pyrite flecks, which are characteristic of the finest lapis lazuli available, liven up the blue color with tiny points of flashing light. There is no damage to this fine piece.
