Stone of Integrity

Aegerine Commonly occurs in alkalic igneous rocks, nepheline syenites, carbonatites and pegmatites. Also in regionally metamorphosed schists, gneisses, and iron formations; in blue schist facies rocks, and from sodium metasomatism in granulites.
It may occur as an authigenic mineral in shales and marls.
It occurs in association with potassic feldspar, nepheline, riebeckite, arfvedsonite, aenigmatite, astrophyllite, catapleiite, eudialyte, serandite and apophyllite.
