This particular lapis lazuli is from Badakhshan, Afghanistan - an area that is world renown for its beautiful royal blue lazurite color. Lapis lazuli generally consists of three important minerals: 1) lazurite (royal blue), 2) calcite (white), and 3) pyrite (metallic gold/yellow).
Medium - material is considered to be medium to fine (sand), ranging between 2 millimeters to 0.25 millimeters (between sieves #10 - #60).
This product is NOT man-made, mixed with resin, or stabilized. Please be careful when buying crushed minerals since most products have a caveat in fine writing that states that this stone might be man-made, mixed with resin, or is made from a composite (generally, plain stone mixed with a dyed resin to make the product seem authentic and is allowed to be called natural). Stone authenticity is extremely important to all artisans; therefore, we strive to validate the source of all our minerals before they are processed and sieved.
As with any naturally occurring minerals, there can be some matrix or host rock mixed in with the product. However, we try very hard to remove each grain of host rock to ensure that our product is of the highest quality. Please see product images for color, size range, and quality. Picture taken in full sun - material is slightly wet.

The lapis was the perfect color and size for enhancing my board. Service was quick, price was comparable and the quality of the stone was great. Wish you carried turquoise in this size. I’ll shop with you again!
