The abandoned Nedre Li farmhouse.

Li Nedre, Evje og Hornnes, Agder, Norway

The Nedre Li farm seems to have been abandoned several decades ago.

The Nedre Li 1-4 localities were visited 20-09-2020.

Sizewise the 2-4 localities are insignificant.

Lauvland 02 Feldspar Quarry, Lauvland, Evje og Hornnes, Agder, Norway

This is not the Bagli locality, though both worked the same pegmatite. This more recent quarry seemed to be worked for aggregate. Mineralogically seen it seems to be an uninteresting pegmatite. Picture taken 20-09-2020.

An exposed pegmatite not far from the Riplan quarry.

Multiple photos available
03477010015886902001823.jpg
Riplan Feldspar Quarry, Evje og Hornnes, Agder, Norway

Approximately 385 m NE of the the Riplan quarry, this very instructive exposure of a pegmatite hosted in augen gneiss could be seen in 2018. Recently someone had removed the overcover, thereby exposing this pegmatite.

The symmetrical structure of the pegmatite is clearly visible and might be called a textbook example.

The coordinates are give or take a few meters: 58.59311986578313,7.793976366519929

The FOV is probably a meter, maybe a few decimeters more...
