They are disposed on a matrix with pyrite and quartz crystals. With a handwritten label.

Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic

A classic specimen of the famous, but difficult to find, twinned orthoclase crystals from this locality of Bohemia. A floating specimen with the Carlsbad twin. Well defined.

More information on this can be found in  [mindat].
