Here's a superb specimen of ORTHOCLASE, VAR. PERICLINE with druzy CHLORITE which forms a striking and aesthetic specimen. This piece comes from the famous Warren Brothers Quarry, Acushnet, Massachusetts, which has produced alpine cleft minerals for years. The specimen is composed of stout, sharply formed pericline crystals in a lovely ivory color, with a 100% coating of dark green chlorite crystals. Pericline is a member of the albite feldspar family of minerals. We acquired this specimen from the late Ernie Schlicter's collection, via the dealer who purchased his entire collection.
