Leucitite, also known as Leucite, is an aluminum potassium silicate mineral and member of the Feldspathoid family of minerals. It crystallizes in the form of isometric crystals that can transform into pseudocubic crystals upon natural cooling ( rarely can Leucite be seen in mass formation). This crystal is usually found within a volcanic rock matrix (mainly Basalt) due to its creation stemming from ancient magma that cooled slowly. The color of Leucite is most commonly an ashy white, but can also be as transparent as a Diamond. They can range in size from a few millimeters to nearly a foot tall, with larger crystals being more susceptible to rapid oxidation. This mineral has very few localities around the world, with the majority of Leucite coming out of Italy, Turkey, Germany, Brazil, and the United States.
Leucite was first described in 1791 by A.G. Werner and was named after the Greek word “leukos” meaning “white” (referring to its color). It is a common belief that this stone was already discovered prior to this year, but was identified with a different name. A few ancient texts have a mineral listed as “White Garnet”, which is believed to be Leucite due to its similarities in structure, hardness, and crystallization.
