Description

This is a razor sharp, superb, undamaged orthoclase crystal with textbook morphology.  It was collected in the 1980's from a mountain exposure and was encased in a very hard matrix which made it very difficult to recover undamaged. No, it is not cut. It is totaly natural. This is the best (and last) one I have. It is perfect!
