Feldspar is a group formation of many minerals which form about sixty percent of the Earths crust. Feldspar originally comes from the German name "feld" which means fiel and Spat which means a group of rock formation. This rock nowadays has many different uses. It is used for example as raw material in the production of ceramic tiles, in a household cleaner called "bon ami", and also as a glazing material. The rock seen on the picture is one of the feldspar rocks as it contains the mineral necessary. The rock has been gradually eroded throughout time and came to be a beautiful site in the desert of Uluru in Australia. The feldspar of many types of granite is core enough to be visible to the naked-eye. When exploring then just observe carefully and it will seem like the rock is centuries old.
