Portfolio/Past Projects > Lapis Lazuli

This is one set that was cut from rough we received directly from the mines in Afghanistan. It exhibits wonderfully rich blue color with some light speckling of pyrite. When I had first made this set I wanted to do something to reduce the weight a little while still keeping the face smooth and solid. Upon concaving the back side a layer of pyrite was exposed leaving a golden puddle in the bottom of the bowl. Freakin awesome.
