This specimen hosts beautiful, blocky, deep blue twinned lazulite crystals up to 1.1 cm. The lazulite crystals are sharp and lustrous, with nice blue glints under the display lights. In very good condition, most crystals are undamaged and a couple have chipped corners – minor relative to the piece overall. An attractive display specimen of Yukon lazulite at a great price.
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.
