In some few cases, minerals may be seen to contain inclusions of other substances, which are useful in making identification. The best examples are seen in some specimens of leucite, which may show small fragments of other minerals, notably the green augite, which are usually arranged in rings. But it is also important to note that not all specimens of leucite exhibit this character.

 

            Other minerals may contain inclusions, but the character is not often of service in distinguishing the mineral. Quartz may show liquid and gas inclusions, and orthoclase sometimes contains glass.
