A single Microcline crystal attached to a small amount of albite makes up this specimen. The Microcline is of the variety known as Amazonite, and shows its characteristic pale bluish-green coloration. The crystal is in excellent condition, showing no human-induced damage, and has excellent triclinic form; even its underside seems to have attempted to form a crystalline face! The Amazonite has a pearly luster and is translucent only along its edges, even in halogen light. The attached albite is heavily damaged and shows almost no discernable form.
