Name(s) in local language(s):
Hamrefjell (Hamrefjeld; Eikeren; Hamrefjell naturreservat), Hamre, Øvre Eiker Kommune (Eger), Buskerud fylke, Norge


The Hamrefjell locality is protected as a natural site (naturreservat) of geological value since 1984, and all forms of collecting are strictly forbidden. The nature reserve has been established to conserve an area with interesting geology due to contact metamorphism.
It is located near the Lake Eikeren, so old labels may refer to this lake (Hamrefjell, Eikeren).
