A superb cabinet sized Lazulite covered with sharp, bright crystals with brilliant luster. The display side is well decorated with a dusting of sparkling light blue to white Apatite crystals much like snow on a hillside. The Rapid creek Lazulites are unique, well regarded as the best crystals of the specie and impressively esthetic in fine specimens like this. Hard to photograph, this is more impressive in person. An older piece from the early finds, top quality, undamaged specimen with excellent presentation.
