In crystalline limestone near granite pegmatite contact.

"The deposit is a small pit at the side of a cliff overlooking McFall Lake". It is 3.1 km from Birds Creek at the north end of McFall Lake.

A.P. Sabina described the diopside as being green, doubly-terminated, stubby crystals, associated with pink calcite in crystalline limestone (MP 8, p81).
