The studied contacts of the dikes have steep angles (70-80 degrees) of incidence, and contact alteration are expressed in weak keratinization of rocks to a width of 5-10 cm. Consist: phenocrysts 20-25% - plagioclase, hornblende; the bulk 75-80% - plagioclase 30-35%, dark-colored mineral (hornblende?) 15-20%, quartz up to 1%. Accessory: apatite, sphene. δπ₽2
