AMAZONITE CRYSTAL CLUSTER
A super Amazonite Crystal Cluster. It features great, chunky crystal formation and that sought-after 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. It comes mounted on perspex for the best possible display. Amazonite is a popular mineral, which is hard to find in decent terminated clusters like this.
8.3cm x 5.8cm x 3.5cm, 152g.
Amazonite Microcline: KAlSi3O8.
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.
