K2 Stone is a combination stone characterized by vivid blue or green “spots” in a mottled granite matrix.
K2 stone is also known as “K2 Jasper” and “K2 Granite” is an extremely interesting rock and lapidary material from the Skardu area of northern Pakistan, (at the route to K2 mountain)
It is like an eye magnet for anyone who sees it for the first time. It is a bright white granite that contains sharply contrasting orbs of bright blue azurite. The azurite orbs range from a few millimetres up to about two centimetres in diameter. On a broken surface or on the surface of a slab, the blue orbs look like drops of bright blue ink that splashed onto the rock. Upon closer examination, however, you will see that they are actually spherical in shape.
