Amygdules in basalt lava of the Brunlanes ultramafic volcanic series. The amygdules are filled with massive fine-grained minerals.
The Brunlanes ultramafic volcanic series consist of olivine melilitites, melilitites, nephelinites and basanites (Dahlgren & Larsen 2012)

NB: The locality is part of the Gea Norvegica Geopark, and collecting is forbidden.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Pennsylvanian : 300.2 ± 0.9 Ma to 300.4 ± 0.7 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
