Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Cabinet, 12.2 x 8.2 x 5.6 cm
Konso, Sidamo-Borana Province, Ethiopia

These Ethiopian amazonites have rivaled those from Colorado in every way: form, color and sharpness. This specimen features two very large, intergrown crystals, with fine deep color. The larger crystal here measures 7 cm by 4.5 cm. Both crystals have sharp faces.
