Albite Moonstone

Size: 94x161x107 mm (1649 gr.)
Location: Seiland, Finnmark, Norway


Translucent moonstone (rare variety of Albite) crystals exhibiting blue Schiller-effect typical of moonstone.


Moonstone is a pearly and opalescent variety of Microcline, it is common to find it in large masses, but not crystallized.

This specimen is probably the best Moonstone I have for sale. It has a lot of small nice albite crystal, a lot of them with blue Shiller effect (Moonstone). You will nee the right angle to see the effect, but this specimen got pretty strong light compared to many others, so you will easily see it.

It is a bit hard to catch on camera, so if you want more information about the stone, please ask.

Also please watch the video for a better view:


This specimen was found in the early-mid 1980's by my father, Gunnar Mathisen.
