This is a classic specimen from one of the most storied and well known districts in Colorado. This piece features sharp lustrous, well-formed, rich blue-green color, prismatic Amazonite crystals. This specimen was collected nearly 30 years ago (July 1980), when Richard Kosnar found some of the finest color Amazonite from Colorado extant. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
