Large Cabinet, 18.0 x 21.0 x 8.5 cm
Ex. Franz Saller
A superb, textbook feldspar crystal. Not just is it big, but it is stark white, perched on a natural pedestal, and just an amazing display of perfection in symmetry in nature. The pics say it all. You do NOT see many feldspars of the quality you could put in a collection of fancy gem crystals and they hold their own. This one, though, does that. Ex Franz Saller collection of Bavaria, Germany; probably purchased in the 1980s. The piece is pristine, and complete all around - remarkably free of damage.
