Caption: Leucite is potassium aluminum silicate and is always white or colorless, the attribute that prompted its name. Leucite occurs in volcanic rocks derived from cooled lava flows, almost always as small grains or white crystals that display a very characteristic and distinctive crystal form known as the trapezohedron. The best known localities are probably the ones on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, Italy, especially near the town of Casserta.
