Orthoclase: The mineral Orthoclase information and pictures

Orthoclase is one of the most common minerals, and occurs in numerous mineral environments. It is polymorphous with the minerals Microcline and Sanidine.These three minerals form the Potassium Feldspar group.They are almost identical in physical properties, and it is sometimes impossible to distinguish one another without x-ray analysis.

Orthoclase Feldspar - Geology

What Is Orthoclase? Orthoclase is a feldspar mineral with a chemical composition of KAlSi 3 O 8.It is one of the most abundant rock-forming minerals of the continental crust. Orthoclase is most widely known as the pink feldspar found in many granites and as the mineral assigned a hardness of "6" in the Mohs hardness scale.

Feldspars in Weathering | SpringerLink

Feldspar weathering occurs via dissolution of all components into solution, with the subsequent precipitation of secondary minerals from solution, and it is the feldspars dissolution rate which controls the overall rate of feldspar weathering. The rate of feldspar dissolution is controlled by the kinetics of surface reactions at the mineral ...
