Albite (var. Peristerite)    Ellis Farm, Macomb, St. Lawrence County, New York.  Collected by Michael Walter, Summer 2015.  As with all of these the peristerite crystals show their schiller best when in-hand and turned in average lighting.  The schiller is present on two opposing prism faces in all cases.  They are obviously not very photogenic when I simply point and click.  This one is a fine cluster with only base and minor back contacts.  It is damage-free and measures 5.5 x 4.7 x 3.2 cm.  The crystals are all well formed with the smaller ones approaching being gemmy.  An outstanding example of this material.  $100
