ID: CC19085
A pleasing prismatic bicoloured single twinned crystal of Orhoclase measuring to 5.2 cm from Baveno, Piedmont, Italy. The bicolour crystal is salmon coloured to mainly white, with some greenish Chlorite to one long face. Twinning on this crystal is very subtle but perceivable due to the little reentrant angle on the top which indicates it is a Baveno Law Twin.
