Oksøyekollen apatittbrudd, Snarum, Modum, Buskerud, Norge


This locality is different from the other Snarum localities which are all in serpentinites.
Chlorapatite is reported from Snarum (in Mineralogical Record (1977) 8, 78-82), but only hydroxylapatite seems to occur at this locality (see http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-74851.html).

Note: Oxøiekollen is a spelling found on old labels.
