Though this thumbnail piece looks just like a nondescript chunk of pegmatite, that also describes the appearance of Amblygonite. What appears to be albite on this piece is actually Amblygonite, with a creamy-white color and a pearly to greasy luster. It shows no actual crystal form, but there are several visible cleavage planes. It is, of course, opaque and is accompanied by milky quartz.
