Collector information

Die weltweit besten Mikrokline stammen aus Colorado (Pikes Peak Region) als matt-smaragdgrüne Amazonite mit Rauchquarz, von Papachacra (Argentinien), Mont Saint-Hilaire und Tory Hill (Canada) und von Amazonit-Neufunden aus Kenticha, Äthiopien

Additional Information

Feldspat-Gruppe ( Buddingtonit-Othoklas-Slawsonit-Serie). Oft als Bavenoer- und Manebacher Zwillinge)
