Pure white thin Albite crystals with clear crystals of quartz and small striated rhombs of Dolomite cream colored.

This is really a nice piece and the photos just don't do it justice, it's too white! Also, it comes with some labels from the Jack Halpern Collection, the William Sanborn collection, and an old label in German from the A. Berger (Anton Berger) Collection, all prominent dealers anc collectors, giving it some good provenance.
