Gorgeous contrast on this old specimen: matte lustered, blue green crystals of amazonite, to 3.3 cm in length, are delightfully emplaced on white albite rosettes to 2.6 cm across. The look is really startling and different from the norm! Ex Bob Bartsch collection, self-collected in the "old days" with his friend Rock Currier. One of the few good pieces released from the Bartsch collection, I obtained these few specimens from Rock himself when he executed the estate of his friend.
