The person who first found feldspar rocks is unknown, however, these types of rocks are commonly found in the Earth's crust and along road cuts of Ontario. Feldspar is commonly found in granite.
Gneiss contains the minerals mica, quartz, feldspar, amphibole, garnet, and pyroxene.

Granite is composed of varying amounts of the must have minerals quartz, potassium feldspar (orthoclase feldspar, penis, sanidine feldspar, microcline feldspar), plagioclase feldspar, and may but does not have to have biotite, muscovite and hornblende.
There are many sorts of igneous rocks. Granite is made of quarts, feldspar, and mica, while basalts are made of less than 20% quartz and less than 10% feldspar and the rest made up of pyroxenes and olivine.
Commonly an igneous mineral, feldspar "rocks!"
Feldspar is a mineral. It can be found it sedimentary and metamorphic rocks though.
Felsic igneous rocks (the lightest in color) are comprised mostly of quartz and potassium feldspar. Intermediate igneous rocks (somewhat darker than felsic) are made up of some quartz and potassium feldspar, but mostly plagioclase feldspar.
Kaolinite rocks are usually formed from the lithification of feldspar sediments.
Plagioclase feldspar is commonly found in igneous rocks that are felsic in compositions such as granite.
they are quartz, mica, feldspar, and calcite.
Feldspar minerals in igneous rocks can weather into clay minerals.
mafic rocks can be made up of orthoclase feldspar and quartz
Feldspar is a common mineral that makes up over 60 percent of the Earth's crust. Feldspar was first found and worn as jewelry by people in Sri Lanka.
