A fine and representative specimen of two species of the feldspar group. Albite is usually seen as massive or blocky shapes, often providing the very rock in a gem bearing pegmatite. But here, it is seen as light blue bladed crystals that resemble flowers. The albite is situated on a matrix of another feldspar species, orthoclase. The front of the piece is hosted on a long and prismatic cream colored orthoclase crystal measuring nearly ten inches at its max. "Feldspar" translates from the old German term for "Field Stone". This is a ruggedly handsome and unique specimen for any naturalist.
