Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Small Cabinet, 9.2 x 7.6 x 7.4 cm
Konso, Sidamo-Borana Province, Ethiopia
Here is a huge compound crystal that is complete and terminated all the way around (there are vertical faces on every side, and a typical white microcline bottom). The merged crystal forms make this specimen particularly interesting, in addition to size. The color is a fine robin's-egg blue.
