A huge, 2130-gram amazonite crystal from this now legendary find of about 5 years ago. This is one of the largest fine, complete crystals from the find of which I am aware. The color, the sharp geometric form and symmetry are striking. Amazonites from Colorado do not come close to matching this for both size and color. Ex. Ed David Collection.
