Adularia, Rutile
Central St Gotthard Massif, Leventina, Ticino (Tessin), Switzerland
Cabinet, 11.0 x 9.5 x 9.0 cm
A superb, old-time pair of en-echelon, lustrous, pearlescent Manebach-twinned orthoclase variety adularia crystals from the St. Gotthard Massif of Switzerland. This outstanding, two-sided, cabinet specimen is wonderfully accented by very well-placed, wine-red rutile crystals. Very nearly pristine. Ex. Hesse Collection, via Linck. Ex. Ed David Collection.
