Auen larvikittbrudd (Blue Pearl bruddet), Mørje, Porsgrunn, Telemark, Norge


A larvikite quarry located between the Sagåsen quarry and Thorbjørnsås Quarry. The quarry was especially known for large magnetite crystals up to 8 cm and 0,3 kg found in a strongly hydrothermal altered pegmatite dike (find of 1997-1998).

The quarry is no longer operating, and have been used as storage of larvikite blocks for Sagåsen Quarry.
