Description

The locality produced the very best Amaznite world-wide. Even best material from Colorado would look pale when you compare with Russian specimen. This specimen represents the colro in the very best way and I have to note, that the color on my photos is still undersaturated, just because the camera couldn´t capture this incredible intensity, which would remind more to emerald than to amazonite. The crystals are sharp terminated and the faces are very glossy, the assemble is very tri-dimensional and the main crystal is exposed. This stuff is very rare and hard to obtain – much more rare than material from US. No significant damages to report.
