A garnet mica schist with idiomorphic 2 mm - 3 cm large almandine crystals. The locality was discovered in the early 1970s by the Norwegian collector Korneliussen. A large number of collector specimens have over the years been taken from this locality by international and Norwegian collectors, some of them illegally (without the permission of the landowner). An episode where collectors used dynamite at the site without permission from the landowner has made collectors unpopular and not always welcome in the area.

Permission must be obtained from the landowner. Due to the conduct of unwise collectors, permission may not longer be granted and this should be respected.

Specimens from this locality have erroneously been labelled as coming from Fauske (the neigbouring municipality). Specimens have also been labelled as coming from "Salten", which is a geographical name of the region. Almandine specimens have also been found from other localities in the same region.
