Lapis lazuli gemstone is a relatively rare semi-precious stone prized for its intense blue colour, in its organic form it is a rock, largely formed from the mineral lazurite, and usually occurs in crystalline marble/limestone as a result of contact metamorphism.
The majority of lapis lazuli gemstone is sourced from the Kokcha river valley of Badakhashan province located in Afghanistan, although it can also be found in Chile (Andes) Lake Beikal region of Russia, Siberia, Angola, Argentina, Burma, Pakistan, India, Canada and in the US states of Colorada and California.
Lapis lazuli is a naturally sourced item and as such each batch can and will vary in colour shadings, shape and deposit compositions, alongside other individual characteristics.
The stones/chips supplied are graded as A-B grade "semi precious" gemstones in their "natural form", having been factory cleaned, drilled, *faceted and lightly polished. *Where applicable.
A - B grade semi precious gemstones are readily available and cheaper to purchase compared to AAA/AAA+ grade gemstones due to the fact that they have not been graded to a "carat weight" necessary for wide scale commercial stone setting, which would then go on to be used alongside precious metals such as gold & platinum to create various jewellery pieces.
Many people assume that gemstones such as emeralds, sapphires & rubies are super expensive to buy, which isnt the case...the many semi precious chips & stones available are mostly offcuts & surplus pieces of the larger (carat graded stone) shaped & cut into beads or ornaments and offered as "semi precious" and not "precious" gemstones as found and sold in jewellery peices in mainstream/independent jewellery shops/outlets.
