Eudialyte Meaning and Properties

Eudialyte, whose name derives from the Greek phrase eu dialytos, meaning “well decomposable”, is a somewhat rare, nine member ring cyclosilicate mineral, which forms in alkaline igneous rocks, such as nepheline syenites. Its name alludes to its ready solubility in acid.

Eudialyte was first described in 1819 for an occurrence in nepheline syenite of the Ilimaussaq intrusive complex of southwest Greenland.

Eudialyte is a silicate mineral containing a complex mixture of the following minerals: Calcium, Cerium, Iron, Manganese, Sodium, Yltrium, and Zirconium. The color is deep pink/red on a grey/black base material. It is a constituent of a rare combination stone from Greenland known as Kakortokite.

Eudialyte’s rarity makes locality useful in its identification. Prominent localities of eudialyte include Mont Saint-Hilaire in Canada, Kola Peninsula in Russia and Poços de Caldas in Brazil, but it is also found in Greenland, Norway, and Arkansas. The lack of crystal habit, associated with color, is also useful for identification, as are associated minerals. A pink-red mineral with no good crystals associated with other alkaline igneous material, especially nepheline and aegirine, is a good indication a specimen is eudialyte.
