A complex cluster of white, opaque microcline crystals with glassy faces. The largest crystal, sitting in the corner of the cluster, is 3.7 cm in length, and displays Baveno law twinning. Sits very nicely for display on its flat base. Other than the usual edge issues, no damage. A very good example for the species and locality, and a twin to boot!
