When you ask most collectors what they think of when they think of Colorado, they will immediately mention two things: Sweet Home mine rhodochrosite, and amazonite and smoky quartz crystals from the Pikes Peak Batholith. This is a superb large example of this sought-after Colorado mineral classic, from the premier modern locale- the Smoky Hawk Claim near Crystal Peak. This fine combination piece comes from the famous White Cap Pocket, and features striking, deep blue-green amazonite microcline crystals with white stripes and several large, sharp smoky quartz crystals. The condition of the piece is superb and this is the sort of dramatic, large smoky quartz and amazonite specimen that every collector is looking for. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
