Abstract: Ekanite, Ca2ThSi8O20, was found for the first time at the Monte Somma in fragments of a sanidinic project in the early 90s at San Vito quarry (Ercolano, Naples, Italy) in three light green bipyramidal crystals (with a maximum size of about 0.3 mm) associated with sanidine, “amphibole”, anorthite and scarce “mica”. The identification was obtained with a preliminary SEM-EDS analysis and confirmed by determination of the parameters of the elementary cell (I422): a 7.462 (5), b 15.047 (11) Å.
