Description

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.

Even without the Moonstone effect, this would be a huge Albite crytal. But combined with the blue schiller effect this makes it a very rare specimen (most ones I got with the schiller effect is much smaller).

The four first pictures are taken in normal indoor daylight. It is possible to see the blue/green Schiller effect without adding extra light (and this one got better effect than most others).

But it is hard to capture on the pictures, so on the 4 last pictures I used extra strong light to expose the effect. 

On most of the crystal you will just see a normal Albite, so the Moonstone/schiller effect is just on the side where I made the last pictures.
