Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 5.4 x 3.9 cm
Pikes Peak, Teller Co., Colorado, USA

This is a fine, old amazonite crystal from Pikes Peak that has a label affixed underneath designating it as "amazonstone." Remarkably, it is a floater, with just one area of contact with white microcline attachment. The crystal has pale blue-green color, and magnificently sharp form. Good luster as well.
