Leucite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
K(AlSi2O6)
Colour:
White, grey
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
5½ - 6
Specific Gravity:
2.45 - 2.5
Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Name:
From the Greek "leucos," for white, in allusion to its common colour.
Leucite is common in some volcanic rocks in which it crystallises with a cubic crystal structure at high temperature (ca. 900°C). Upon cooling to 700-600°C, it transforms into a tetragonal modification which is stable at room temperature and forms characteristic polysynthetic twin lamellae. The transformation is reversible.

The mineral is usually included as a feldspathoid by petrologists, as it is a common primary rock-forming mineral in some high-potassium rocks but, despite being anhydrous, structurally it also has a topological relation to zeolites, especially analcime, and thus is typically included in that family also.
