huge slightly yellow orthoclase cut stone
I have posted two pics of huge cut orthoclase stone. The original size was over 400 carats. My wife found this in an old mica prospect here in Georgia. Initially, I did not know it had any value because 1 carat stones were selling for 5 to 10 dollars on ebay. After two years I discovered very large clear stones of this material are not so common. The cut stone shown is 190 carats. Would like to hear from others who have found clear othoclase material.
