Royal blue Lapis Lazuli cabochons from Afghanistan.
Lapis Lazuli is a blue metamorphic rock that has been used for centuries as a gemstone, and the finest quality specimens have been sourced from Afghanistan's Badakhshan province for thousands of years.
The vibrant, royal blue color of these cabochons is a result of the presence of the mineral lazurite, which is the primary component of Lapis Lazuli. Other minerals, such as pyrite, calcite, and sodalite, may also be present in Lapis Lazuli, adding interesting patterns and variations to the stone.
