Leucite is common in many different lava rocks, but it is extremely rare in gem-quality form and frequently has a milky or foggy appearance. Collectors reward crystals with beautiful shapes as well as stones with facets.
What is Leucite?
Mineral collections are more likely to contain faceted leucites than jewelry collections. Despite the odd color flashes that some stones may have, their basic appearance doesn’t usually lend itself to wearing as jewelry.
They are also just 5.5 to 6 in hardness, making them vulnerable to scratching from household dust. However, they have weak cleavage, which actually prevents them from splitting. However, protective settings are advised, particularly for ring use.
In the range of 900° C, leucite crystallizes into an isometric form. It retains an externally isometric shape, but as it cools, it recrystallizes into a tetragonal structure.
Some leucites have very poor birefringence due to the fact that tetragonal crystals have axes of two distinct lengths. (Isometric gems, on the other hand, are singularly refractive.) Striation and twinning are also frequently brought on by this change into a tetragonal shape.
