This plate is covered in deep blue, lustrous lazulite twins, and the way the main crystals are oriented, the twinning is particularly evident on this specimen, when examining it closely. There are sparse micro quartz crystals dusting the piece in a few places. In excellent condition, a few chips visible upon close inspection, and at the lower, left of centre (in the first photograph), a couple of incomplete crystals show recrystallization surfaces. With many glassy crystal faces, this specimen shows very well under the lights.
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.
