A rosette of twinned lazulite crystals (1.5 cm) with a smaller twinned crystal, on matrix; with crystalized quartz, siderite and gormanite (a rare species). The overall piece is 2.1 cm x 5.4 cm x 1.9 cm. ***It doesn't show in this image and I need high power on a jeweller's visor to see the chip in one blade of the rosette, which is why this specimen is only $75 CDN
