143 grms. yellow orthoclase crystal single
56 x 50.5 mm. Other view
This crystal is not totally clean. There is some cleavages ( not across all the crystal ) and inclusions inside the stone, but it is transparent. The base of the crystal was in contact with the mother-rock, this is why its shape is not complete. There is a damage at a corner too, but generally, the shape is good and that looks better than the picture. This type of big yellow orthoclase crystal, is no more fundable in Madagascar for many years. It is a collector stone.
