Blue Aragonite on Sandstone from Afghanistan (Ref: FB22-BLUEARG10)

Helmand, Afghanistan
185mm x 120mm x 60mm
We've sold a lot of blue aragonite over the years, but these new specimens from Afghanistan are easily our favorites, and they are by far the best from Helmand we have ever seen! You have to see them in person to fully appreciate the color and form, but they look like blue styrofoam or blue spray insulation. The color is amazing, and at first we thought maybe they had been dyed, but upon closer inspection you can see the growth layers of differing shades of blue in the cross-section, so these are definitely not dyed.
