The Bozqush, Kaleybar, and Razgah foid-bearing syenites are located in East Azarbaijan province, NW Iran. Mineral chemistry determined for the amphiboles and clinopyroxenes of intrusions to specify elemental exchange, magmatic affinity, and tectonic setting. Chemical composition of the amphiboles varies from magnasio-hastingsite to ferro-pargasite. This study shows that the Kaleybar amphiboles are richer in Ca+IVAl than the Bozqush ones and CaIVAl=SiNa exchange is the main substitution. According to mineral chemistry, the clinopyroxenes are diopside. Considering the atomic proportion of Wo, En and Fs in the studied clinopyroxenes, variation in end-member components mostly involve the interchange of En and Fs. Moreover there is M2CaM1(Fe2+,Mg) = M2NaM1Fe3+  exchange in the clinopyroxenes. The Composition of clinopyroxenes and amphiboles indicate that they were derived from volcanic arc miaskitic magma at relatively low pressures. Based on Al and Ti contents, thermobarometry of the amphiboles show pressures of 6±1 and 7±1 kbar for the Bozqush and Kaleybar intrusions respectively and temperature of 900±100 ˚C.
