Naujaite

Naujaite: Agpaitic nepheline-sodalite syenite with a poikilitic texture comprising crystals of feldspathoid minerals enclosed in alkali feldspar and ferromagnesian silicates. For Naajakasik (formerly Naujakasik), Ilímaussaq complex, South Greenland.

For more information about the Ilímaussaq magmatic complex, see page: "Ilimaussaq"

Sample kindly given to me by Robert Gill.
