ID: CC19216
An impressive sheave of solid crystallised Adularia, a low-temperature variety of Orthoclase Feldspar, from Tujetsch in the Vorderrhein Valley, Grischun, Switzerland.  The Adularia forms a flat, parallel-sided V-shaped wedge of crystallised Orthoclase, uniformly milky-white, translucent and with a bright glassy lustre.  The whole specimen is essentially a highly flattened rhombohedral crystal which at one end bifurcates into numerous smaller 1 to 1.5 cm high crystals forming a sawtooth edge.  No point of attachment is visible, indicating this is a floater.  A classic and impressive alpine Adularia complete with a lovely old Freiberg label.
