In the more widespread Fundortgruppe 4 the most common species after quartz are fluorite and calcite; the fairly common species are orthoclase ("adularia"), albite ("pericline"), chlorite, fluorapatite and hematite; subordinate species include epidote, titanite, pyrite, anatase, brookite and a few zeolites.
Dump material from a cleaned-out cleft at Laperwitzbachgraben once yielded albite (variety pericline) crystals accompanying milarite crystals to almost 2 cm (Steckbrief, Lapis 4, 1979; extraLapis 5, 1993).
Adularia is commonly termed orthoclase, and is usually a mixture of domains with different degrees of internal order (and therefore a mixture of orthoclase and microcline), but the feldspar at Zagi is identified as microcline because all samples examined under the polarizing microscope showed grains with crosshatch (combined albite and pericline) or spindle (deformed albite) twinning, both of which are characteristic of microcline.
