Flowerstone (Flower Feldspar) Slabs
This unusual material is known by rockhounds by the names Flowerstone
and Flower Feldspar, which are quite descriptive of the material.
This Feldspar Phenocryst in Basalt material might be referred to as
Basalt Porphyry by geologists. However, we think that's pretty boring
and not appropriate for such a beautiful gemstone. Either way, it's
darn cool stuff and cuts unusual stones.
Flower Feldspar comes from the beaches of Vancouver Island, British
Columbia and has never been available in large quantities. It cuts
easily and takes a nice polish with diamond or tin oxide.
