Microcline (Var: Amazonite), Fluorite
Miniature, 3.6 x 2.7 x 1.5 cm
R. A. Kosnar claim, Yucca Hill, Steven's Ranch, Lake George, Park Co., Colorado, USA

This is a classic association 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, wonderful display specimens and excellent associations. This particular specimen features sharp lustrous, well-formed, rich blue-green color Amazonite crystals, but the most important aspect of this piece is the fact that it is associated with small, pale lilac color octahedral crystals of Fluorite at the base. This association is not common, and to find such superb color Amazonite with Fluorite is even less common from the Lake George area. This specimen was collected over 30 years ago (August 1976), when Richard Kosnar found some of the finest color Amazonite from Colorado extant. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
