AMAZONITE CRYSTAL PIKES PEAK
A super Amazonite Crystal Pikes Peak. It features good crystal formation and the sought after aqua blue green colour. Most Amazonite on the market is the massive rock from Madagascar or Brazil, with iron staining and pale colour. This Crystal stands out in comparison as a collectible piece from the best location. There is a crack all the way through the crystal shown clearly in second pic. It was part way through but with a little nudge, it’s now two pieces. The crack inside has refilled with calcium from the matrix. It is hard to find decent Amazonite Crystals.
