The locality is located in the southern part of Lommedalen, about 7 km from Sandvika and 15 km W of the capitol Oslo. It was exposed during road construction in the early 1980s, and it is today (2010) completely covered by houses and asphalt. The minerals were found in amygdales in a basalt (Flow B 3).
