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

It weight is 244 grams, and it measures  65 x 65 x 43 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 is a great and big albite crystal, even without the Moonstone effect I got few on this size. In addition this one got the blue Moonstone effect. You can barely see it in normal daylight, so be aware that the video and all pictures except the last 2 are taken with extra strong light to expose the blue Moonstone effect. Also be aware that the effect is only seen in 2 areas of the crystal, and that you would need both the right angle and extra light.

The last two pictures are taken in normal daylight where it would look more grey.

Please watch the video for a better view. You can also see the video here https://youtu.be/Nd0xGOb9bsQ
