A white cap/white stripe amazonite has been on my wish list for nearly a decade. It's not that there were none available - just not one that met my size and price criteria. My patience was finally rewarded when the one pictured below turned up. It was my most exciting find of the Denver Show.

This specimen was collected May 25, 1996 by Ray Berry on a claim that later became the Smoky Hawk Mine.

Smoky Hawk claim, Crystal Peak area, Teller County, Colorado, USA

Another of the new wulfenites from La Morita Mine. I think the color zoning of the crystals is interesting.

Indeed very unusual, Michael. I wonder what the chemical and physical conditions would be for such a curious habit to grow.
