Just nitpicking - I would better suggest to use
blkid -p <device>
It will also detect crypto but also it will print if
there is some other signature.
You should see something like
# blkid -p /dev/sda2
/dev/sda2: UUID="..." VERSION="1" TYPE="crypto_LUKS" USAGE="crypto" ...
(-p means bypass cache, for old blkid just remove this switch
if not supported)
