Garnetite in a tin-bearing skarn, formed under conditions of relatively low temperature and low (XCO2).

Andradite garnetite in limestones/shales alternations near a buried batholith. The skarns are affected by a late boron metasomatic alteration.

Localisation : Hillside on the West bank of the Beht River.
