Orthoclase Pseudo. After Leucite
Oberwiesenthal, Germany
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 5.7 x 5.5 cm
A wonderfully stereotypical, complete-all-around, 360-degree, pseudomorphic trapezohedral crystal comprising what must once have been a beautiful garnet-shaped Leucite crystal now replaced by orthoclase of the consistency and visual stunningness of sidewalk cement. Well, admittedly that is not a beautiful advertisement of color, but it IS a beautiful piece for symmetry and a really nifty locality specimen.
