ID: CC19085
A pleasing prismatic bicoloured single twinned crystal of Orthoclase measuring to 5.2 cm from Baveno in Piedmont, Italy.  The bicolour crystal varies from salmon to mainly white, with some greenish Chlorite on one long face.  Twinning on this crystal is very subtle but perceivable due to the tiny re-entrant angle on the top which indicates its Baveno Law Twin habit.
