A polycrystalline albite feldspar specimen, opaque and glassy, with curving crystal faces. The Bowersox collection card and label on the acrylic base both give the locality as Ashley Prospect, Pala District. Mindat does not include a locality under this name, but does include Ashley Mine as an alternate for the Katerina Mine. Displays quite nicely on its custom made and labeled acrylic block base. No damage. From the San Diego/Riverside Counties, California gem pegmatite collection of noted Southern California collector Jim Bowersox.
