Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Small Cabinet, 5.3 x 4.2 x 3.8 cm
R. A. Kosnar claim, Yucca Hill, Steven's Ranch, Lake George, Park Co., Colorado, USA
This is a classic specimen from one of the most storied and well known districts in Colorado. The pegmatites near the Lake George area of Colorado have produced what collectors and dealers know to be the finest Amazonite specimens from the standpoint of color, quality, fine display specimens and excellent associations. This particular specimen features sharp lustrous, well-formed, blue-green color Amazonite crystals. Keep in mind that 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.
