Elinovskii is a long, narrow granitic body of some 400x50 m lying within terrigenous lower Devonian sandstones and limestones and lower Silurian limestones. In the southeastern part of the contact they are intensively altered to skarns. The main intrusive phase is a medium-grained riebeckite granite that gradually merges into medium- to coarse-grained peralkaline alaskites. In the country rocks there are rare dykes of granosyenite and alaskite as well as aplitic granites.
