Fine cluster of the famous green-blue Amazonites from the Pikes Peak area of Colorado. Not only is the color rich and classic for there, the luster is good and the aesthetics of these blocky crystals make a well-balanced thumbnail. The largest of the crystals is about 1.7 cm across. You don't often find such a good cluster of Amazonites in this size. An excellent thumbnail.
