LAPIS LAZULI is perceived here in Europe almost exclusively as being found in Afghanistan.
But there is a no less well-known site in South America and this famous gem has been mined here for centuries.
The “BLUE GOLD of the ANDES” is also the national stone of CHILE.
The intensely BLUE LASURITE parts are in gray WOOL ASTONITE with a little white CALCITE and some PYRITE indentations.
ANDEN LAPIS was found in OVALLE – LINAO Province – mining takes place at heights of over 3,600 meters.
