Amygdales in basalt (B1) exposed during road and tunnel construction (new alignment of E 18) in 1997-2000. Locality no longer accessible (heavy traffic!). The minerals listed here were found both in the very tunnel and the area north of the tunnel (including the areas called "dagsone nord" ["Dayzone North"] and Brekkekleiva).
