    Lapis & Chalcedony
    Multiple Localities

    This unique carved offering includes two cut and polished Lapis cabochons as well as two cut and polished Chalcedony cabochons. The two matched Lapis stones are no doubt from Afghanistan and measure 24.8 x 10 x 3 mm. The Lapis pieces display an incredibly saturated azure blue hue and have been cut and polished by a skillful craftsman on all faces. The two Chalcedony stones are matched and were cut into high domed cabochons. Each measures 11.8 x 8 x 6.1 mm and features an opaque clarity and a light powder blue hue. This free-form set is something of a curiosity and is in pristine condition.
    Total Carat Weight: 22.67

    Provenance: The Jena Blue Collection
