A fantastic and aesthetic, ship-shaped specimen! The V-shaped "hull" is a large lustrous, aegirine crystal. The "deck" of this sailing ship or freighter is overgrown with "masts" or "booms" of smaller aegirine crystals and the "bow" area is partially covered with "white ice" feldspar crystals. For sheer pazzazz, this two-sided piece from Mt. Malosa sure has it. There are very, very few broken smaller crystals on this beauty.
