Item Description

Adularia is another one of the gem quality Feldspars and is actually a variety of Orthoclase. The material is often found in "Alpine-type" formations but rarely in gem quality crystals. This stone is from the famous Austrian Alps and would make for a very rare gem to add to your collection. These gems are simply not seen on the market, especially in this clarity! Most Adularia crystals from this area are "milky" in appearance and have what's called "adularescence". This stone is very very slightly included and shows a VERY light blue color sheen when rotated in the light. The stone has a "Narrow Rectangle" cut. Gems of this clarity are not often seen on the market, especially from the classic Austrian Alps! A great "collector" gem, and much more than just a colorless Feldspar.
