Bytownite feldspar is a calcium rich member of the Plagioclase family. The mineral was first described in 1835 & named for Bytown (now Ottowa) where it was found in Canada. High quality transparent examples are used to make faceted stone in the jewelllery trade. In these examples the phenocrysts are green & opaque & set in a basalt matrix.
