Abstract A sample of natural albite, NaAlSi3O8, from the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, has been investigated. the mineral is a solid solution of K-feldspar (4600 ppm - K) and Ca-feldspar (1100 ppm - Ca). the TL spectra of natural and the pre-annealed at high temperature albite presented a very intense band around 275 nm and weaker bands around 400 and 560 nm. Other TL properties have been investigated through monochromatic (275 nm and 400 nm) glow curves. the EPR spectrum measured at low temperature (77 K) shows the typical 11 lines signal due to Al-O--Al center superposed on Fe3+ signal around g = 2.0. the EPR spectra above 260 K show only g = 2.0 signal due to Fe3+ ions.
