Lazurite crystal on Marble
stock #24.1-191
Sar-e Sang, Kuran wa Munjan District
Badakshan, Afghanistan
3.3 x 2.7 x 2.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $110

A well-exposed and sharp crystal of Lazurite on contrasting white Marble matrix. It is hard to find such a good thumbnail of Lazurite, the crystals tend to be much too large. In fine condition, a choice classic specimen.

Lazurite -well formed crystal on Marble
stock #19.1-080
Laduar Medam, Sar-e-Sang District, Koksha Valley, Khash and Kuran Wa Mun
Badakshan, Afghanistan
5.5 x 5.3 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $560

Bright blue and very well exposed on contrasting matrix, this is a striking specimen. In fine condition the form is complete with edge modification clearly visible, and just under 3 CM across. Typically the faces of these crystals are never very lustrous and can be fairly rough or crude. This specimen is about as lustrous as these get, the crystal faces show some course texture but are way more smooth than is normal. From finds a few years ago, a very attractive and clean piece.

Lazurite - crystals in Calcite
stock #19.1-079
Khash and Kuran Wa Munjan District
Badakshan, Afghanistan
4.3 x 2.1 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $360
Spring 2019

Top grade, intense blue color of well formed Lazurite crystals that are nicely exposed from the contrasting matrix. A super attractive miniature specimen that has the main crystal perched perfectly on top. No damage though there is contacting on the back that is not visible on any normal display angle. This is far better than typical for the excellent color and form, as a display specimen this has a lot of impact for the size.
