Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Cabinet, 12.0 x 7.0 x 5.5 cm
Konso, Sidamo-Borana Province, Ethiopia
This specimen is from the new finds of Amazonite in Ethiopia. This showy specimen features a pair of beautiful, deep blue-green color, very well formed crystals with minor Albite. These are easily some of the finest quality Amazonite specimens to hit the market in recent years. Aside from the specimens that occur at the Pikes Peak Batholith in Colorado, these are some of the most impressive Amazonite specimens around. This specimen has good color and is not at all pitted like many crystals from this area. 12.0 x 7.0 x 5.5cm
