TOP GRADE LAPIS LAZULI FROM AFGHANISTAN
" STONE OF AZURE"
Lapis lazuli, also known as just lapis, is a stone with one of the longest traditions of being considered a gem, with a history stretching back to 7000 BC in Mehrgarh of Indian subcontinent, situated in modern day Afghanistan, Pakistan. Deep blue in color and opaque, this gemstone was highly prized by the pharaohs of ancient Egypt, as can be seen by its prominent use in many of the treasures recovered from pharaonic tombs. It is still extremely popular today.Lapis is a rock and not a mineral because it is made up from various other minerals.
ONCE UPON A TIME (MANY MOONS AGO) WHEN MY WIFE WAS A SWEET YOUNG THING I BOUGHT HER THIS BEAUTIFUL POLISHED ASHTRAY. I KNEW SHE LIKED EXPENSIVE THINGS SO I JUST COUGHED UP THE CASH AS IF THERE WAS NO TOMORROW AND GAVE $100 FOR IT. I GUESS I WANTED SOME KIND OF REWARD WHEN I GOT HOME. IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO BUT I DOUBT IF I GOT ANY REWARD. NOW THAT MY WIFE IS NEITHER YOUNG NOR SWEET IT IS TIME TO PASS IT ON.
THIS IS A NICE PIECE OF AFGHAN LAPIS. I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT STONES BUT I DO KNOW THIS ONE IS BEAUTIFUL AND TOP GRADE.
I KNOW IT WOULD MAKE A NICE HOME DECOR PIECE OR IT WOULD BE A GOOD LAPIDARY ITEM TO CUT INTO SMALLER PIECES TO MAKING PRECIOUS JEWELRY. IT IS 5.00" WIDE, 3.10" TALL AND 1.00" THICK.
