Microcline (Var: Amazonite), Albite
Cabinet, 10.2 x 7.5 x 5.1 cm
Konso, Sidamo-Borana Province, Ethiopia
This specimen is from the recent finds of Amazonite in Ethiopia. This showy specimen features beautiful, blue-green color, well formed crystals on Albite matrix. 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 Pike's Peak Batholith in Colorado, these are some of the most impressive Amazonite specimens around. This specimen has nice color and form and is not at all pitted like many crystals from this area. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
