Here is a fantastic piece of Colorado Microcline. This specimen was covered in a red iron deposit, but cleaned up nicely I think! happy088.gif
I love how different one piece is from another.

You can learn more about Colorado Microcline and see another example in our Gems and Minerals section of the website. Enjoy, and we would love to see your Microcline finds from Colorado.

Microcline, eh?

Any relation to the Cline family? Anti-Cline, Syn-Cline, Mono-Cline, Patsy Cline....? eating-popcorn-03.gif


Humor aside, it's a cool tectosilicate. Does not appear to have an industrial use.
IIRC isn't one of our friends here mining the green version over by Lake George?

Today's socio-political climate is rock solid proof that Adam and Eve weren't prospectors.
If they were they'd have eaten the snake instead of the apple and we'd still be in heaven....

The specimen above did come from Lake George.
You remember correctly Carl, not only is he a claim owner, but a CP club member as well!

I think microcline is used in some way during ceramics production.

They are doing fine and staying busy with their latest mining activities I'm sure and probably finding some killer specimens too! signs021.gif
