Microcline (Var: Amazonite), Feldspar Group
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 5.5 x 3.0 cm
Konso, Sidamo-Borana Province, Ethiopia
These contemporary Ethiopian amazonites are comparable to the classics from Colorado in just about every way. The color of the best ones is an intense turquoise blue and with excellent luster. This fine 3-crystal cluster is beautifully completed with bladed balls of white feldspar. It is sharp and complete all around.
