The occurrence is situated 5km NE of Zaborovka village, known from 1960.
The large block-like body of eclogite composing of garnet (30-60%), actinolite (5-15%), zoisite (5-30%) and quartz (up to 5%). The fissures in garnet contain chlorite and secondary quartz. Garnets were not evaluated as gems.
Besides the little diamonds in eclogites the gem crystals were found up to 2.85mm in size.
