Leucite is a relatively rare feldspathoid, and this is a classic for the species. The trapezohedral crystal is sharp, the color is good, and the luster very good. And the coup de grace is an Augite crystal embedded in the Leucite crytal that for all the world will remind you of Snoopy. Too cool. 2.5 x 2.3 x 1.8 cm
