Miarolitic cavities in biotite granite (Drammens granite).
Around 1980 the western part of the Skafjellås area was a building site for private houses. During the the construction period much material rich in miarolitic cavities were available for collectors. Now it is a well established housing estate with limited collecting possibilities. Any new house-or road building in the biotite granite rock in the area might have good micromineral possibilities.
