Microcline (Var: Amazonite), Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Cabinet, 10.7 x 7.0 x 5.7 cm
Smoky Hawk claim, Crystal Peak area, Teller Co., Colorado, USA

The recent finds of amazonite and smoky quartz from the Smoky Hawk claim of Teller County are among the finest this historic district has produced. This fine cabinet specimen is an excellent and aesthetic example with top color. The lustrous, sharp, crystals reach 5.5 cm and have rich, turquoise-blue color. A couple of small smoky quartz crystals, tucked into clefts, are nice accents. Collecting by Adam Sotomayor, a well known local collector.
