Lazurite

ID: CC8882
A large partly developed crystal of inky azure-blue Lazurite embedded in a plate of creamy-grey Orthoclase crystals and mm-sized Pyrite crystals.  From the Koksha Valley in Badakhshan Province, Afghanistan, Lazurite is a sulphide-rich variety of Hauyne, but is usually listed as Lazurite and not as a variety.  The 4.0 x 2.5 x 1.2 cm part crystal displays nicely in the centre of the specimen with a matt yet slightly waxy lustre.  This is a fine example of Lazurite, the mineral that imparts the blue colouration in the decorative rock Lapis Lazuli.
