This albite was found by my father about 25 years ago at Seiland, Finnmark, Norway.

It weight is 671 grams, and it measures 82 x 101 x 91 mm.


Translucent moonstone (rare variety of albite) crystals exhibiting an amazing 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.

It is very rare to find, and when I search on Mindat, I can only find two places in the world with Albite Moonstone (Seiland is not mentioned as one of them):

If you find other albite moonstones for sale, you will also see that they are pretty expensive compared to the ones I am selling. 

This albite moonstone that I am selling here got a truely amazing color effect. Please watch video for a better view (click the video tab above).

Beware that you would need enought light, and the right angle to see the effect. In the pictures/video with the blue effect I have taken the photos/video in extra strong light.

Most albites found on Seiland do not have this effect, and if you find someone with the effect, it will vary in intensity. This one is pretty good, and in addition with big nice albite crystals, it makes it one of the top finds.
