These stones were cut in Afghanistan and the polish could be better.
Lapis lazuli has been mined in the Badakhshan province of Afghanistan for 6,500 years.
The finest color is intense blue, lightly dusted with small flecks of golden pyrite. There should be no white calcite veins and the pyrite inclusions should be small. Stones that contain much calcite at all or too much pyrite are not as valuable. Patches of pyrite are an important help in identifying the stone as genuine and do not detract from its value.
AS WITH ALL OUR STOCK YOU MAY RETURN IT FOR A FULL REFUND IF NOT PLEASED PROVIDED IT IS NOT TOUCHED IN ANY WAY.
Overall the gem is ok except that there is a small chip near the edge of the garnet if look at it carefully and was not highlighted in the ad.2.52 CTS CERTIFIED SPESSARTITE GARNET-DEEP COLOURS (GNR48)
