This piece is an excellent specimen of gem-grade, polished lapis lazuli that has been sculpted into an abstract freeform shape. It weighs 680 grams, 1,5 pounds. The dark royal blue color is superb, and golden pyrite flecks, which are characteristic of the finest lapis lazuli available, liven up the blue color with tiny points of flashing light. There are also veins of pyrite on the sides and white calcite which run through the piece. No damage. Stands up on its own with no stand.
