Item Description

Leucite is a relatively well known potassium aluminum silicate that rarely occurs in gem quality crystals. Italy has produced a fair amount of Leucite over the years, but this is the very first faceted gem that I have offered in the auctions from Italy. The stone is nearly colorless (a very pale yellow color), and is very very slightly included with a "Round" cut. If you're a rare stone collector, do not miss out on this gem, as it is the only one I have to offer.
