Blue Afghanistan Lapis Lazul Lazuli stone Crystal Ball AN2744
by JK Silver
This is a beautiful Lapis Lazuli crystal ball from Afghanistan. It is lovely with its deep blue color and natural spots of golden pyrite. The ball comes with a nice little wood stand as well. It does have a couple of white circular lines on it which I am not sure if they are natural in the stone or made when grinding it into a ball. They are smooth to the touch so I would say they are not scratches.
