For the longest time, just about all the amazonites you saw on the market were from Colorado. Then there were the amazing finds in Ethiopia, and now -- China - though this material has come out in very limited quantities thus far. The color is more greenish than your typical amazonites, and there is a slight translucency to the crystals. Note the unique accenting albite and books of muscovite which also distinguishes these amazonites.
