A dense druze of large Lazulite crystals coats the host rock on this Canadian specimen. The largest of these dark blue crystals attains dimensions of 0.4 x 0.3"(1.0 x 0.8 cm). A few of the crystals show noticeable damage, but most are undamaged. Only smaller crystals and those with large internal fractures will convect light, showing a dark blue color- the rest appear black. They all have a vitreous luster and rest on a very rust-stained host rock. The specimen is affixed to a flat acrylic base with a removable putty. These are some very pretty crystals, and some of the largest that I have seen yet.
