Azurite from Laos can rank among the world’s finest! Gem quality electric blue, highly crystallized Azurite grown on a matrix alongside the fibrous Malachite with a velvety sheen. The combination of which creates a nice visual counterpoint. The bladed Azurite are exceedingly bright and translucent.
Azurite of this finest quality are very difficult to find! Thanks to my daddy's long-term relationship with the suppliers in Asia and Laos, I am able to acquire the most beautiful and rarest pieces of all. The photos don’t do it justice as it is way more beautiful in person!
