grms. yellow orthoclase crystal single
56 x 50.5 mm.
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.
