~ Lazulite in quartzite cab ~

Offered here is a extraordinary cabochon cut from rare lazulite in quartzite, premium lapidary material from Georgia's renown Graves Mountain area. In this example, there are several deep blue lazulite crystals, some of which show their typical dipyramidal form. The grayish quartzite base has a nice degree of translucence, and contains a multitude of silvery pyrite flecks that sparkle like fine glitter, though my camera captured only a hint of them. The last photo, taken in reflected light, shows them best, so please be sure to click to enlarge the pics. If you like featuring the truly unusual in your creations, you're going to love this stone! It has a well rounded dome of 6mm, a sleek designer 'spear' shape, and a smooth glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 54x22mm
Weight: approximately 49 carats
