The Jindivick locality is an abandoned basalt quarry which is situated 2 km south-east of Jindivick township.
"The basalt is of Eocene age and forms part of the Older Basalt suite.
Outcrop within the quarry is poor as the walls have weathered and been overgrown. Most of the zeolite specimens have been collected from several large dumps of quarried basalt boulders. The zeolite-bearing basalt is generally dark grey to greenish grey and markedly amygdaloidal. Vesicles up to 2 cm across are common and are usually filled or lined with grey green montmorillonite or with zeolites. Adjoining vesicles often carry quite different minerals."
9 valid minerals.
