Bulk Polished Lapis Lazuli - 8oz. (~ 25pc.)

 
 
Lapis lazuli is unlike most other gem materials because it is not a mineral. Instead, it is a rock composed of multiple minerals. The blue color of lapis lazuli is mainly derived from the presence of lazurite. To be called "lapis lazuli," a rock must have a distinctly blue color and contain at least 25% blue lazurite. Pyrite usually occurs in lapis lazuli as tiny, randomly spaced grains with a contrasting gold color.


You will receive 8 ounces(approximately 25 pieces) chosen at random. The photos are representative of what the mineral looks like. These polished minerals are great for educational use or gifts for kids.
