• Albite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albite Albite is a plagioclase feldspar mineral.It is the sodium endmember of the plagioclase solid solution series. It represents a plagioclase with less than 10% anorthite content. The pure albite endmember has the formula Na Al Si 3 O 8.It is a tectosilicate.Its color is usually pure white, hence its name from Latin albus. It is a common constituent in felsic rocks.

    www.minerals.net/mineral/albite.aspx Albite also forms a series with Sanidine, and the intermediary member of this series is Anorthoclase. Albite can contain up to ten percent potassium replacing the sodium. If more than ten percent replaces the sodium, the mineral is no longer Albite, but Anorthoclase. Albite is a very common mineral, and is an important rock-forming mineral.

Pericline is elongated and twinned along the b-axis and thus have long tapering faces along the prism form.
