A Si-rich phlogopite lamproite dike that outcrops in a road cutting at Blåmannvika and at Melketinden, about 4-5 km further southwest. The dike is 0.3–0.4 m thick, of a transitional type, and has an unusual Ti-Ba-P accessory mineralization (Zozulya et al. 2010).

The rock consists of phenocrysts of light brown Mg-rich fluorotetraferriphlogopite, phlogopite, yangzhumingite and apatite in a fine-grained matrix dominated by K-feldspar, quartz and alkali amphiboles. 3 compositional groups of amphiboles, that include CNa-, Fe2+-, Fe3+- and O-rich "potassic-obertiite" (actually more likely "potassic-ferri-obertiite")
