Feldspars are a group of rock-forming tectosilicate minerals which make up as much as 60% of the Earth's crust. Feldspars crystallize from magma in both intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks as veins and are also present in many types of metamorphic rock. Feldspars are also found in many types of sedimentary rock. Perthite (such as this Apricot Feldspar) is formed through an intergrowth of two feldspars where a host grain of potassium-rich alkali feldspar includes lamellae or irregular intergrowths of sodic alkali feldspar. Typically the host grain is Orthoclase or Microcline, and the lamellae are Albite.
This is a pretty and delicate material (Sometimes referred to as peach or apricot moonstone), with a silvery sheen like aventurine. Its energy too is a delicate blend of the orange and pink Rays, linking sacral and heart centres and strengthening feelings of true love and devotion between lovers and life partners. There is too a sense of innocence and purity in the stones energies, thus it is equally suited to gift to a child or baby, as a token of their place within a family unit, as the much loved outcome of a loving union between their parents.
