Lapis, Badakhshan, Afghanistan. I have picked up a number of large lapis tumbles and also a couple lots of smaller pieces. These make very nice sculptural decorative pieces. I particularly like the ones that stand on edge, though you could use the ones that lay flat as a display base, or fancy drink coasters with a little cork or felt glued to the back. Most of the pieces I see are under 2 kilograms, but if you are interested in a larger one, I see them now and then. These are the kinds of rocks I like to have sitting around the house where people can pick them up and look at them since they cannot be easily damaged. Let me know if you are looking for something in particular.
