Zeolitized volcanoclastic deposits (Quaternary lapilli tuffs).

The co-ordinates below are for Jabal Aritayn North.
These Zeolites are also found at Jabal Aritayn South (32.04.36 / 36.51.37 and it is unclear as to which the Ibrahim et.al. (1995) reference specifically refers. It is possible that Ibrahim refers to these locations in general terms.
