Clefts in Upper Cretaceous limestones exposed along the Jerusalem-Jericho road. These limestones belong to the Hatrurim Formation (qv), metamorphosed by endogenous heating (mud volcano).

Located about 5 km NW of the Nabi Musa hill.


Note: Although chromatite's type locality is given in some references as in Jordan, and the area was technically part of Jordan when chromatite was described, the West Bank is now Palestine and is no longer claimed by Jordan.
