Older idiomorphic orthoclase crystal partly altered to fine muscovite and inclosed in fresh, unaltered orthoclase of the second period of consolidation. Drawing from thin section 184, fresh alaskite from the Vega prospect. Illustrates formation of muscovite by the action of the residual magma on earlier formed feldspar during consolidation.        Enlarged about 180 diameters.
