A quartz prospect close to Mäkitulokas farm in Sukula town (description from 1863). Probably also the TL of ferrowodginite. It was described from a sample collected around 1863 with an imprecise label (Ercit et al 1992). Vorma & Siivola (1967), however, pointed to that the samples probably originated from a quarried pegmatite near the Mäkitulokas farm in Sukula where "ainalite" (a tantalian cassiterite) were originally found by Nordenskiöld.
