Sagåsen Quarry (Saga 3 Quarry), Sagåsen, Mørje, Porsgrunn, Telemark, Norway

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Name(s) in local language(s): Sagåsen larvikittbrudd (Sagåsenbruddet), Sagåsen (Strandåsen), Mørje, Porsgrunn kommune, Telemark fylke, Norge
Larvikite quarry located approx. where the Saga 1 quarry was, but on a lower level. A large, nearly horizontal pegmatite vein was exposed in 2003, and produced a large number of both rare and good quality minerals. This vein, similar to the famous vein in the Saga 1 quarry, is still well exposed (situation May 2009).
The quarry is still operating, and it is expected to be one of the most exciting localities in the larvikite area also in the future.
