Larvikite is named after the town of Larvik in Norway, where this type of igneous rock is found. This stone is a relatively coarse-grained anorthoclase-rich igneous rock. The presence of the alternating alkali feldspar and plagioclase layers give characteristic silver blue sheen (Schiller effect) on polished surfaces.
Larvikite is sometimes known informally as Blue Granite or Birds eye Granite, although this is not an accurate description. It is also known as "Norwegian Pearl granite" which is a trade name sometimes applied to the lighter colored variety of Larvikite while "Blue pearl granite" is a trade name sometimes applied to the darker colored variety of Larvikite.
