Two types of megacrysts, one from Pakra Creek and the other from the Sloboština Creek locality proved to be low microcline in associationwith low albite and quartz. A sample from Pakra Creek is a vein filling megacryst characterised by the absence of twinning. The deduced crystallization temperature is below 460°C. The sample from Sloboština Creek is a pocket forming megacryst which shows tweed-like texture, with deduced crystallization temperature near to but above 460°C. Both samples are characterized by a continuously modulated lattice on the submicroscopic scale.
