Pegmatite of the LCT (Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum) type, quarried since 1933.
Discovered by the landowner Mr. Harald Holmgren who started quarrying for quartz in 1933. Later quarried periodically by Bolidens Gruvaktiebolag since 1936. Several of the minerals were studied by P. Quensel and co-workers, all published in a series of articles in Geologiska Föreningens i Stockholm Förhandlingar (GFF) in the years 1937-57.
