This is an A grade Lapis Lazuli Sphere and it is delightfully large. The blue is stunning, you can see some flecks of pyrite, and a bit of calcite except on one end. You can see see some natural re-healed cracks.
It is a shape that is delightful to hold but not for long – it is heavy. It comes from the mines in Afghanistan, which is where Cleopatra got her lapis! Here is a video of it: SH119-lapis-video
This crystal cleanses on a mental level by healing outdated thoughts and mental patterns. Therefore it facilitates a more positive outlook on life.

And the later points, myself and my customers can testify too!
