Lazulite 2017 07

Lazulite from Brazil

This month we feature a blue lazulite from Brazil—not to be confused with lazurite, the gem form of lapis lazuli. Lazulite is extremely rare in larger size faceted gems and usually only is found in small prismatic rough crystals associated with quartz veins and quartzite. This 5-carat piercing blue gem is reminiscent of haüyne or a dark cobalt-blue spinel. It exhibits dramatic color with good translucency. Definitely a collector's stone but the color will draw any curious eye in for a closer look. A fine gem to add to your database of rare and exceptional minerals found on our geologically diverse planet.
