Lazulite (hydrous magnesium aluminum phosphate) is a rare mineral that can be identified by its
bright blue dipyramid-like crystals. In nature, it is found associated with the minerals muscovite
and quartz in igneous and regional metamorphic rocks. Masses of lazulite are located in
California, USA, and Austria. Its name comes from "lazaward", which is Arabic for heaven and
describes its beautiful blue colour.
