Calcite veins hosting schorl crystals to over 3.5cm wide / up to 5.5cm in length, and ilmenite crystals up to 3.2cm, exposed during highway construction. The ilmenite crystals are usually altered to a mixture of hematite, rutile and anatase. On occasion, this mixture can also contain brookite and titanite. Another uncommon pseudomorph is that of micro rutile crystal clusters after ilmenite crystals.
The roadcut was exposed during the construction of Autoroute 5 extension (Phase I) during 2007-2009.
