Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.7 x 2.7 cm
Smoky Hawk claim, Crystal Peak area, Teller Co., Colorado, USA
A beautiful, turquoise-blue amazonite crystal from recent finds at the Smoky Hawk Mine of Teller County. The color of Smoky Hawk amazonites is very much above average for Colorado amazonites and approaches those of the famed Tree Root Pocket of the 1990s. This sharp, complete-all-around crystal has textbook form and excellent luster. The contacted sides are damage-free. Excellent material from the Wes Parker Collection.
