I haven't come across many Orthoclase crystals that looked as good as this one. It is a classic penetration twin measuring 1-5/8 inches by 1-1/8 inches by 1 inch, with very clean sides and minimal damage. Actually, most of the detectable damage is due to the crystal being broken out of the matrix and then glued back into position. The matrix seems to be made of a pegmatitic syenite that contains a few small visible crystals. It's a lovely crystal specimen.
