COMMENTS:

Here is a very nice Afghanistan (Afghan) lapis lazuli (lazurite) cabochon where the gem rough was mined from the renowned Lapis-lazuli Mine at Sar-E-Sang in the Badakhshan Province (also known as Badakshan or Badahsan), Afghanistan. This lapis stone has a very nice royal blue color, a fantastic face up and a very gemmy eye appeal. This gem does have some calcite visible to the naked eye and very lightly sprinkled with a touch of pyrite! -- THIS MATERIAL WAS MINED AT THE RENOWNED LAPIS-LAZULI MINE AT SAR-E-SANG LOCATED IN THE DESOLATE & TREACHEROUS VALLEY OF KOKCHA, WELL KNOWN FOR ITS TOP BLUE LAPIS, ALONG WITH THE PRESUMABLY EXHAUSTED DARREH-ZU MINE ALSO IN THE THIS DESOLATED VALLEY. WE WERE THEIR YEARS AGO WHEN IT WAS MUCH CALMER THAN IT IS TODAY AND IT IS EITHER VERY COLD OR VERY HOT ALONG WITH BEING VERY TREACHEROUS, BUT WE DID GET SOME VERY TOP LAPIS WHILE WE WERE THEIR. -- Would make a great stone for a jewelry piece or just add to a gem & mineral collection!

Happy shopping! We are not new in the gem trade or auctioneering. We offer all natural gemstones, gem carvings, & facet/cab/specimen grade gem rough, with full disclosure of any enhancements known.
