The nepheline syenites, the central area of which covers about 10 km 2 , also form dykes and veins which intersect the layered gabbroid series and also the accompanying dyke rocks (dolerite and spessartite). The nepheline syenites comprise nepheline, microcline and aegirine with lesser arfvedsonite, biotite, apatite, zircon, titanite, ilmenite, titanomagnetite and spessartine.
