Price per: gram
Sale price$0.13 CAD


Origin: Boston Bar, British Columbia, Canada

Description: This is from a site that is no longer accessible. We mined it for two short years in 2016 and 2017. about 2 hours drive into the logging roads from Boston bar, you'd find yourself at a large quarry that was abandoned some time in the 1970s. 

We had to rebuild the road to get in, and it is now entirely washed out, down a cliffside. The road in had been deactivated and there were trees growing in the road close to 4 inch in diameter. It is a special kind of rough rock from British Columbia, with a limited supply left.

Chemical Composition: KAlSi₃O₈
Grade: Lapidary Grade
Appearance: Opaque

Cracks: Minimal/ None
Mineral: Minimal- Technically, the amazonite is the inclusion. It is true amazonite, however it is minimal. It is in a granite rock that has a blue hue to it.

Rough is rough. We do our best to grade and describe pieces in the lot, but ultimately, they all differ.
