A rather large, single microcline crystal, with good luster and (in some places) stepped growth features providing a somewhat rough surface. Baveno twinning is easily discernible. Minor shiny muscovite and black tourmaline also present. Sits upright as shown without needing a stand, but a small stand would improve its stability. Although the growth is somewhat irregular, I don't see anything that I'd call damage.
