Lapis Lazuli Free Form Finest Quality From Pakistan: Discover the captivating allure of Lapis Lazuli with our exquisite freeform pieces. These unique gemstones are more than mere adornments; they hold ancient secrets and metaphysical properties.

  1. Lapis Lazuli Composition:

    • Lapis lazuli is an aggregate of several minerals, each contributing to its distinctive appearance.
    • Lazurite grains provide the gem’s characteristic blue colour.
    • Golden pyrite flakes add attractive contrast, creating a mesmerizing interplay of hues.
    • Occasionally, lapis lazuli also contains other minerals such as diopside, amphibole, feldspar, and mica.
  2. Colour and Appearance:

    • Lapis lazuli’s signature hue ranges from slightly greenish blue to violets blue.
    • The higher the percentage of lazurite grains, the darker the blue colour.
    • In its most prized form, lapis lazuli has no visible calcite, although it might feature gold-coloured pyrite flecks.
    • Avoid the lowest-quality lapis, which appears dull and green due to an excess of pyrite.
    • Lapis with white calcite streaks is less valuable.
  3. Physical Characteristics:

    • Lapis lazuli is semitranslucent to opaque with a waxy to vitreous lustre.
    • Its hardness ranges from 5 to 6 on the Mohs scale, depending on the mineral mix.
    • The gem can exhibit smoothly uniform body colour or intriguing flecks of pyrite and calcite.
    • Calcite appears as white flecks or streaks, while the golden spots are pyrite.
  4. Variety of Blues:

    • Although many associate lapis with dark blue, it also occurs in other shades:
      • Deep violet blue
      • Royal blue
      • Light blue
      • Turquoise blue
    • The combination of minerals determines the colour; for instance, lazurite produces royal blue, while afghanite results in a pale blue shade.
  5. Sources:

    • The traditional and finest lapis lazuli comes from the mountains of Afghanistan.
    • Other major sources include Chile and Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia.
    • Minor sources are Angola, Canada, Colorado (US), and Pakistan.
