Size: 75x39x30 mm (150 gr.)

 

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 is a big single crystal. You will only see the Moonstone effect on one side, but this one got very good intensity of green/blue color seen without extra light.

Actually you will see a minor Moonstone effect also on one of the other sides, but only if you add extra strong light.


Please watch video to get a better view:

The video and the 3 first pictures where you see the effect are taken with extra strong light.
