Item Description

A starkly dramatic, SUPERB cluster of five complete, prismatic crystals of Orthoclase from the famous Erongo Mountains. About four years ago, a number of prismatic Orthoclase crystals associated with Fluorite came out. However, none of the feldpars that reached the market compared with this specimen. The longest crystal is 8.5 cm long, and there is a generous coating of Hyalite Opal. A great specimen in form, quality, and aesthetics. So sharp, it looks carved! We valued this highly and Charlie considered it an exceptional piece
