Lazurite Cristalli su matrice - 87×52×66 mm - 266 g - (1)

Beautiful Natural Well Terminated Blue Lazurite Crystals On Matrix From Badakhshan Province Afghanistan, Matrix Size=(87x52x66 mm) Weight= 266 Grams THE MINERAL LAZURITE Lazurite is famous for its gem form, Lapis Lazuli casually called by its shortened name Lapis, is the gemstone form of Lazurite that is associated with white Calcite and sparkling Pyrite. The name Lazurite is derived from the term "Lazaward", which means heaven in Arabic, alluding to its blue color. Lazurite occurs almost exclusively in massive form without any visible crystals. The exception is the historic occurrence of Afghanistan, where this mineral is famous and highly regarded for producing outstanding rich-blue crystals unlike any other minerals. These crystals, almost always perched in a white marble matrix, are highly sought out after by mineral collectors. When not used as gemstones, the non-crystallized forms are often polished for collectors and may also be sliced into slabs. Lazurite forms a solid solution series with Hauyne, essentially sharing the same chemical formula but with a variation of the sulfide over the sulfate. Lazurite has the sulfide dominating, whereas Hauyne has the sulfate dominating. Much of the known Lazurite material is actually sulfate-dominating, which means it is in fact Hauyne and not Lazurite. This is especially true at the most famous locality of Lazurite at Sar-e-Sang in the Kokcha Valley of Afghanistan, where all the Lazurite has in fact been determined to be Hauyne. Despite this, the mineral community still accepts this material as Lazurite despite the scientific inaccuracy. It has become accepted to refer to the opaque, non-fluorescent, ultramarine-blue material as Lazurite, and all other material, especially when exhibiting transparency, as Hauyne.
