A microcline feldspar matrix with distinctly parallel crystal growth hosts a cluster of off-white, bladed albite crystals (variety cleavelandite) and two sharp, distinctly hexagonal intersecting muscovite 'books'. Individual cleavelandite plates reach at least 1.4 cm in width, and the largest muscovite is 3.9 cm across. This aesthetic pegmatite association specimen is free of damage, and displays quite nicely without needing a stand.
