Large Cabinet, 22.9 cm
22.9 cm tall. This is a huge and incredibly pristine, complete 360-degree cluster of giant feldspar crystals from this important locality. At 12.8 pounds, 9 inches tall, it is dramatic and impactful. Even more, it is a floater cluster of two large crystals with no attachment points, complete all around. It is partially covered with cleavelandite and with a nice smoky quartz crystal for accent.
