Description

Fabulous example of first choice Lapis Lazuli, characterized by a very intense shade of blue.
A mineral already recognized as precious by the ancient Egyptians and which since ancient times was highly sought after both for adorning buildings with colorful jewels and in the art of painting as it was the source of the blue color for frescoes.
Its cost was very high, comparable to gold, because the main deposits were and are still found only in Afghanistan.
A truly fascinating specimen in natural form.
