Limestone quarry that is presently (2007) merged with the Limberg quarry (see there), forming a hole that's maybe 1-2 km long and about 0,5 km wide.

The Limberg quarry forms the eastern part of the hole, while the Skräbböle quarry forms the western part.

Located in the centre of Pargas (Parainen).

It is currently (2015) operated by Nordkalk Corporation which was founded in 1898 under the name Pargas Kalkbergs Ab-Paraisten Kalkkivuori Oy (Pargas Limestone Inc.).
