A showy and excellent microcline plate dominated by beautiful, complete all-around and pristine, Carlsbad-twinned crystal. This piece has nice form, with the smaller microclines as the matrix. The crystals have pearlescent luster and are preferentially overgrown by lustrous and transparent light-gray microcline. These are some of the finest microclines found from any locality in recent years.
