Since Feldspar is such a common part of the earth's crust it is not surprising that it is most often associated as a component in granite. So often it can be dismissed as just a rock, but when found in massive columnar, prismatic or tabular crystals Feldspar can be quite striking. These pieces are what make for great jewelry and depending on what other minerals were available during its creation the colors can vary quite a bit; Orthoclase is often found in white to a pinkish color, Microline can be a yellowish color and Amazonite is a beautiful green. These crystals are also what attracts gem and mineral enthusiasts, like myself, to Feldspar.
