A lustrous, 2.5 cm, muscovite book "commands" this showy and excellent CABINET plate of very sharp, lustrous, cream-colored microcline crystals with a scattering of smoky quartz crystals from recent finds in the Andes Mountains of Argentina. The 2.5 cm, smoky in the front is doubly terminated and the periphery wear certainly does not detract from the overall aesthetics of this fine piece.
