Microcline, Albite (Var: Cleavelandite)
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 5.5 x 2.4 cm
Florissant (Topaz Butte), Crystal Peak area, Teller Co., Colorado, USA
Good white microcline specimens are actually more uncommon than the more familiar blue microcline (amazonite) specimens from the Crystal Peak area. Here, you have a cluster of microcline crystal terminations peeking out from under a blanket of cleavelandite. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection.
