I had not known when it would come in that it would have a bit of carving on the bottom, too! As you can see in my video, the entire bit is covered in design. The spikes are nice and pointy! With that in mind, keep out of reach of children or pets, they could hurt themselves if they aren't careful with it. It has a nice heft to it, and the lapis has a nice sparkle that sadly isn't captured well on my phone camera. The color is vibrant! I would definitely recommend this, it makes a gorgeous centerpiece to any collection. As all lapis, it radiates a beautiful and powerful energy. Perfect addition to my draconic altar! Will certainly be back for some of the other dragon skull carvings.
