It is polymorphous with the minerals Microcline and Sanidine. These three minerals form the Potassium Feldspar group (K-feldspar). The three principle varieties of K-feldspar are Microcline (low temperature), Orthoclase (medium temperature), Sanidine (high temperature). Other, rare, related feldspar varieties include Adularia and Anorthoclase.
