Item Description

An impressive sharp doubly terminated, complete-all-around, lustrous, off-white Microcline crystal with textbook crystal faces dominates this fine piece from the find around 2006-2007 in Pakistan. One termination is a Baveno-twin, with only modest contacting, while the other end has a very sharp sloping termination. All four of the prism faces are preferentially overgrown by glassy, lustrous and transparent Microcline, with very nice effect. These are some of the finest Microclines found from any locality in recent years. Ex Herb Obodda. Valued by the former dealer at $750. Seldom on the market today.
