Feldspar - Feldspar was first mined in North Carolina in 1911 in the Spruce Pine district, the main feldspar-producing district in North America. Original mining was from pegmatite bodies but current mining is from alaskite,a very coarse-grained, light-colored, feldspar-quartz-muscovite rock.

Hi Bob,

Devonian Stone is made of these particles. For a pile of sand to become stone, it has to be cemented together by some mineral carried in the groundwater and deposited between the grains of sand. Several minerals can do this, e.g. calcite, quartz, feldspar, hematite, and in the case of Devonian Stone, quartz is the cementing material.

Geology of Quartz Deposits

Two sill-like masses of quartz and kaolinized feldspar constitute the deposit. One is about 4 meters thick, the other about 2, and they are separated by about 7 meters of country rock quartzite. About 80% of the bodies consists of a quartz core; kaolinized feldspar with tourmaline needles lies along both the foot and hanging walls.

Gemstone Hardness and Wearability

A 7 or higher on the Mohs scale usually indicates a gem is hard enough for normal jewelry use. This is a guideline, not a hard and fast rule. Pearls and opals are some of the most popular jewelry gems but are well below 7. Wearability can be graded as Excellent, Very Good, Good, Poor, or Display Only.

Melting Points of Rocks and Minerals

Melting Points of Rocks Igneous rocks form through the crystallization of magma.There is a considerable range of melting temperatures for different compositions of magma. All the silicates are molten at about 1200°C (when a part of rock) and all are solid when cooled to about 600°C. Often the silicates are grouped as high, medium and low-melting point solids.

Glad You Asked: Igneous, Sedimentary, & Metamorphic Rocks ...

Individual quartz grains are deformed, interlocked, and fused together. When the rock breaks, it typically breaks through the grains. Some quartzite formations retain their original bedded (layered) structure such that when broken they form flagstones that are commonly used in landscaping or as veneer for buildings.

Rapakivi granites

During this ascent there is no change in magma chemistry and very little change in temperature but a large decrease in pressure, so that conditions become such that potassium-feldspar and quartz are resorbed while plagioclase feldspar becomes stable and precipitates. This would explain the ovoid shape of the alkali feldspars.

 · Labradorite, andesine and sunstone are plagioclases feldspars. Like the potassium feldspars, they have a hardness of 6 to 6.5, but they differ in their tendency to have slightly higher refractive indices, ranking between beryl and quartz. Apart from gemstones, feldspar is an important industrial mineral.

When a feldspar cools, it may internally segregate into separate crystals with different properties. These are not easily distinguished, but a single stone may have layers of orthoclase, plagioclase and other feldspars. This process is called unmixing and is how blends are created. The layering of different species results in twinning.

There are different types of granite depending on the percentage mix of quartz, mica and feldspar. Black granite is known as an Anorthosite. It contains very little quartz and feldspar and has a different composition than true granite. MAN-MADE Stones are derived of unnatural mixtures such resin or cement with the additive of stone chips.
