Item Description

There is much to admire in this old-time, cabinet-sized cluster cluster from the Pikes Peak batholith, the world's prime producer of superb Amazonite crystals and clusters. The crystals are well-formed, have the lovely and classic green-blue color, and the largest is a significant 9.8 cm. The luster is good, and selected crystal faces have the highly-desirable, preferential white Microcline coating. Top Amazonites are always wonderful additions to any good collection, and this massive large piece would certainly qualify as impactful in any collection. 1125 grams - nearly 3 pounds in weight! Valued $3500-5000 From the collection of East Coast collector, George Elling, specializing in historic minerals of the East Coast and minerals from the development of old European mineralogy.
