Best Answer

Potassium feldspars are common members of the alkali feldspar group and form a complete solid solution series from KAaSi3O8 through (K, Na)AlSi3O8 to NaAlSi3O8. You really need more information for a precise chemical composition as K-Feldspars can have a wide range of chemical compositions.
