Orthoclase- Carlsbad twin, unsual locale
stock #18-AX-22-273

Kangwon Province, North Korea
6.8 x 5.4 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $150
Late Summer 2018

It is very rare to see any minerals from North Korea. Most specimens that are known are from old collections and usually have vague locality information. This is such a piece, with textbook perfect form but rough texture, complete Carlsbad twin. No damage, displays fine on any side, a simple floater. The mineralogical literature about the Northern Korea is sparse but it seems there are some significant deposits and Pegmatites that may someday be sources of wonderful things. Until then, specimens like this are very special and quite uncommon.
