eye candy

amazonite on albite with smoky quartz
this one is beautiful (notice I did not say amazing even though it is quite). this specimen is from the Icon Pocket, Smoky Hawk claim, Crystal Peak area, Teller Co., Colorado, USA. to give you a little scale, the large amazonite crystal on the left is about the size of a soda can.

amazonite is one of my favorites. I've self-collected Californian amazonite with Jake on a couple trips, nowhere near as colorful or gemmy, but a few hexagonal crystals to be somewhat proud of:)
