A large microcline crystal from this classic gem pegmatite locality. Some faces are lustrous while others have growth features rendering them rough and pitted; this type of feldspar growth is sometimes called 'bonespar' for its bone marrow-like appearance. The specimen is complete all around without an obvious point of removal from matrix; hence it is a 'floater'. One end has a an obvious striated cast where this microcline wrapped partway around a tourmaline crystal. An excellent example of the typical microcline at the locality. Easily sits for display without needing a stand. No damage. Ex Jim Bowersox collection; the original collection card which accompanies the specimen records that it was personally by Jim in 1970.
