- Feldspar With Quartz
- Sakangyi, Mogok, Burma
- Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 4.3 x 3.5 cm
- Ex. William (Bill) Larson
An aesthetic combo specimen features a 6 cm long, lustrous, cream-colored microcline crystal that has two lustrous and translucent, smoky quartz crystals, to 2.7 cm in length, at the base of the feldspar. Sharp and geometric, this piece has a porcelain-like beauty to it. There is even a secondary overgrowth on the back side of the larger microcline. A tiny ding at the termination of the microcline crystal does little to detract from the specimen. From the Burma collection of "Burma Bill" Larson, who has for decades brought out gems and then minerals as this region opened up to the trade in specimens.
