Eudialite embedded in pectolite from a cavity found at the Diamond Jo Quarry, Magnet Cove, Arkansas. One boulder produced a fairly large number of euhedral eudialite crystals, some free growing, but the majority embedded in fibrous pectolite like this example. The "gas" cavities are actually fluid bubbles cooked off of xenoliths sinking into the syenite magma. They are confined to the pseudoleucite syenite bordering the Magnet Cove complex. Assimilated xenoliths comprise the remaining cavities in these syenites.
