Orthoclase- Carlsbad twin, type locale
Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad)
Bohemia, Czech Republic
6.8 x 4.8 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
new june 17

From the original Karlsbad, this is a perfect Carlsbad twin of Orthoclase. The twin is a complete floater 360 degrees without comtact. There is a second twin perched in the center of the specimen, making this a twin-twin to coin a phrase. This habit got its name from early finds at Karlsbad and this is a textbook perfect example from an old Czech collection.
