A feldspar and quartz quarry that was started after Bjørllyke's time.

Stensrud (2009) writes that when he visited this quarry in the 1990's, Knut Mølland mined here both quartz and feldspar.

This quarry has become famous for superb specimens of aeschynite-(Y) and spessartine.

Stensrud (2009) reports that in the microcline in the wall of the quarry cavities/fractures of up to 5-10 cm wide could be seen. In these there were small crystals of microcline, muscovite, albite and calcite.

Collectors are NOT welcome here!

Mesoproterozoic
1000 - 1600 Ma



ID: 1376424
Mesoproterozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Description: Sveconorwegian Complex

Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.

Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
