Abstract - Summary 
(short description):
The Alluaiv site of the Lovozero eudialyte complex is investigated in detail using 3D mineralogical mapping. The site consists mainly of trachithoid eudialyte malignite with separated layers of foidolite, bazalts of the Lovosero suite and Ca-rich nepheline syenite with anorthoclase and parakeldyshite (apo-basalt metasomatite). Variations of modal, granulometric and chemical compositions of all recognized minerals have been studied, with especial attention to economic minerals (eudialyte and loparite). A new rock-forming heterophillosilicate selivanovaite is discovered in malignite layers with Ca-rich murmanite.
