Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Miniature, 3.8 x 3.8 x 3.0 cm

These contemporary Ethiopian amazonites are comparable to the Colorado ones, formerly the "kings" of the species. The color, as here, is a beautiful turquoise-blue and the crystal has fine luster. The form is complex, architectural and sharp.
