Detalied Description

This piece features a gorgeous twinned deep blue lazulite crystal (1.3 cm) on brown siderite crystals. The lazulite crystal is well-defined with sharp, glassy faces. In very good condition, minor edge chip part way along the right-hand edge, and there is a chip on the back, primarily, at the right hand corner - as displayed, it is mostly behind the crystal and so mostly not visible - in any event, I've angled it differently to photograph this.  This is a super lazulite crystal.

About these Lazulites

Discovered in the 1970s, the occurrences at Rapid Creek have become known as among the best localities in the world for lazulite. These occurrences are very remote and the costs are high, so specimen collection efforts are few and far between, and it is hard to obtain fine specimens. These fine lazulites are from a recent find, in 2015.
