Copses of dates and dwarf-palms succeeded the dense forests; then vast, dry plains, dotted with scanty shrubs, and sown with great blocks of syenite
. All this portion of Bundelcund, which is little frequented by travellers, is inhabited by a fanatical population, hardened in the most horrible practices of the Hindoo faith.
It was then passing over Mabunguru, a stony country, strewn with blocks of syenite
of a fine polish, and knobbed with huge bowlders and angular ridges of rock; conic masses, like the rocks of Karnak, studded the soil like so many Druidic dolmens; the bones of buffaloes and elephants whitened it here and there; but few trees could be seen, excepting in the east, where there were dense woods, among which a few villages lay half concealed.
Not far from Monte Video we passed through the village of Las Pietras, so named from some large rounded masses of syenite
. Its appearance was rather pretty.
With Soviet help, the Zahgah mine, near Sarab 50 km east of Tabriz, will produce aluminium ore from a nepheline syenite
* MINEX[R] functional fillers and extenders are produced from nepheline syenite
; a naturally occurring silica deficient, sodium-potassium aluminosilicate.
Occurrence: As a monomineralic veinlet cross-cutting poikilitic nepheline syenite
. Associated minerals are: nepheline, potassium feldspar, biotite, shcherbakovite, astrophyllite, fluorapatite.

A single yellow milarite crystal measuring 4.3 cm long and 1.1 cm wide is attached, inclining at a slight angle, to a 1 X 6 X 9-cm matrix plate of syenite
. On the matrix are scattered small crystals of orthoclase, apatite, and smoky quartz, and a little fibrous actinolite ("amiant").
The Wicheeda REE Deposit, as defined by previous drill campaigns, comprises an approximately 250 x 200 metre irregular shaped intrusive plug of relatively higher-grade REE-mineralized dolomite carbonatite extending from surface to vertical depths ranging from 30 to 100 metres, below which mixed dolomite carbonate and syenite
breccia rocks occur to a currently drilled maximum vertical depth of 184 metres.
