Description

This is a piece of Albite from Seiland, Finnmark, Norway that has a minor Moonstone effect.

Translucent moonstone (rare variety of albite) crystals exhibiting blue Schiller-effect typical of moonstone.

Moonstone is a pearly and opalescent variety of microcline, it is common to find it in large masses, but not crystallized.

Most Albites you find here will not have the Schiller-effect at all. With this piece you can not see it in normal daylight, but you will see some small effect if you expose it to very strong light (plus you need the right angle). You will see the effect on the right side on the biggest crystal, and also on the backside of the same crystal (see the last picture, plus end of the video)

Even without the schiller-effect this is a nice sample of albite from Seiland, with a big crystal on the right (the one that got schiller-effect). You will however see that all crystals on the edges got damages, plus some whine nicks on some of the Alibites.

To better see the Moonstone (blue schiller effect) please watch the video (click video tab above). The video is shot with extra strong light.
