Nepheline-syenite pegmatite dikes cutting potassic alkaline rocks (mainly malignites and nepheline microsyenites) in the vicinity of Gordon Butte in the Crazy Mountains.

All pegmatite veins are principally composed of K feldspar, nepheline, aegirine, barytolamprophyllite, wadeite, eudialyte, loparite-(Ce), and altered rinkite. Well-differentiated veins contain pockets filled with calcite, fluorapatite, manganoneptunite, Mn-Ti-enriched aegirine, calciocatapleiite, etc. Interaction of the earlier-formed mineral assemblages with deuteric fluids produced Sr-REE-Na-rich fluorapatite, BA-Fe titanates, REE-bearing carbonates, muscovite-zeolite pseudomorphs after nepheline, re-deposition of Ba in the form of hyalophane, baoite and neptunite, etc.
