The locality consist of 2 parallell coarse-grained syenite pegmatite dykes, a upper one, and a lower one. The lower one is < 1m wide an can be followed for about 30-40 m. The upper one is exposed for a shorter distance. There is a difference in the mineralogy of the 2 dikes.

NB: Collecting at the site, which is protected as a nature reserve since 1982, is strictly prohibited by Norwegian law.
