Aegirine is common in high-soda, low-silica rocks, in the fine-grained equivalents. However, is quite uncommon.

The best Aegirines are in U.S. occurrence, at Magnet Cove, Arkansas, where slender crystals several inches (10 cm or more) long are very abundant. In Canada, St. Hilaire in Quebec has become famous for its feldspathoid group of hundreds of nepheline syenite associates. In Russia, the Kola Peninsula is equally famed for a like assemblage, commonly with rare-earth, zirconium, and titanium minerals.

Acmite needles are set in a dark-hued dike of this material at Beemerville, New Jersey. Mid-size crystals are found in low-silica rocks in the Bear Paw and Highwood mountains in Montana and near Colorado Springs.

The same sort of Aegirine is found in Greenland; at Langesundfjord, Norway; and near Polos de Caldas, Brazil.
