Summary:Several P(H2O)-T projections with isobaric T-X sections for the system NaAlSiO4-KAlSiO4-SiO2-H2O have been constructed for a range of P(H2O) reasonable for igneous activity. In addition to earlier known relationships, two eutectics (nepheline + kalsilite + leucite = melt and nepheline + leucite + orthoclase = melt) are depicted at different P(H2O) values. The excess amounts of Na2O within micrographic nepheline-orthoclase-kalsilite intergrowths are responsible for forming 'pseudoleucite'. These nepheline-orthoclase-kalsilite microsymplectites can be interpreted either as products of direct eutectic crystallization of these minerals from a magma or eutectic crystallization of nepheline + orthoclase + leucite or nepheline + kalsilite + leucite, with subsequent subsolidus breakdown of leucite and formation of additional amounts of kalsilite and orthoclase within the intergrowths.
