Name:Named for the Wilui River region, Saha Republic (Yakutia), Russia.

This name has been frequently used since the 19th century for two different minerals originating from the same region.

Von Leonhard used it for a mineral that was for a long time in the west considered the same as Vesuvianite. This material has recently (1998) been shown to be rich in boron and in fact a different mineral species, now named Wiluite - see Viluite (of Von Leonhard).

Severgin (1824) used it to describe a find of Grossular from the same region - see Viluite (of Severgin)
