Outcrop of the Hatrurim Formation (qv), northwest of the north end of the Dead Sea. Asphalt seeps are well-known in the area.

Combustion metamorphic rocks affected by strong hydrothermal alteration (fossil mud volcano).

The outcrops were exposed during construction of the Jerusalem-Jericho highway across Nabi Musa hill (a double-crested hill covering an area of 0.46 km²) in 2006. Since then supergene alteration due to seasonal rainwater takes place. Chromatite and unnamed CaCrO4.2H2O form in the dry season.

The hill is located 5 km southeast of the Maale Adummim area.

"Parawollastonite" is also mentioned by Seryotkin et al. (2012).
Pseudowollastonite-bearing paralavas are the products of combustion metamorphism associated with spontaneous burning of methane of mud volcano.
