Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 5.5 x 5.0 cm
Konso, Sidamo-Borana Province, Ethiopia
This superbly-formed crystal has just the faintest hint of blue, so I am tempted to call it microcline, but lets just stick with amazonite. At any rate, it is an absolutely TEXTBOOK crystal measuring 5.2 cm across, perfectly trimmed out with a sparing amount of matrix. 7 x 5.5 x 5 cm
