Flowerstone Slabs from British Columbia Canada
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. The material we have contains nice, big “flowers”.
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.
