It also usually has Nepheline, Olivine and/or Quartz inclusions.
Larvikite is a black igneous rock made up entirely of feldspar that crystallizes in the form of large masses. Within the feldspar itself, small silver-blueish shimmering crystals that give Larvikite its notoriety and fame, known as the “Schiller Effect”. Larvikite is believed to have formed over 298 million years ago, at an estimated depth of 18 miles below Earth’s surface. The name of this mineral comes from the local town of its original discovery, Larvik, Norway.
