AMAZONITE CRYSTAL CLUSTER
A super Amazonite Crystal Cluster. It features great crystal formation and aqua blue green colouration. Most Amazonite on the market these days is the massive, rock like type from Madagascar or Brazil, which often has a lot of iron staining and pale colour. This cluster stands out in comparison as a great collectible piece for the collector. This cluster looks much better in person and is a good size too. Amazonite is a popular mineral, which is hard to find in decent terminated clusters like this. Colour looks way better in person on this specimen.
6.6cm x 5.7cm x 2.7cm, 116g.
Microcline is a common, but not a well known mineral and has been used as a semi-precious stone under the names of Amazonite and Perthite. Amazonite is a variety that is deep green and is suitable for carving and polishing.
