R. A. Kosnar claim, Yucca Hill, Steven's Ranch, Lake George, Park Co., Colorado, USA
The Lake George area of Colorado is best known for producing some of the most magnificent Amazonite specimens in the world. There aren't many species associated with the Amazonite, mostly Quartz, Albite, Fluorite and sometimes Hematite. The majority of the Hematite specimens from the Lake George area are often found as pseuomorphs after Siderite. This particular specimen features a gorgeous cluster of excellent, sharp, aesthetic rhombic crystals of Siderite which have been replace by Hematite and are sitting atop beautifully contrasing pink Microcline. The specimen was collected by Richard Kosnar in the Summer of 1977. A very attractiv, and hard to find Hematite pseudomorph from this historic area in Colorado. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
