Locality type:


It is a chain of relic volcanic craters 6-6.5km long and 0.5-1.2km wide. It is infilled with the explosive volcano-clastic products of the alkaline-ultrabasic composition-tuffs and tuff-breccias. The diatreme is composed of fine-grained, medium-fragmented and agglomerate lapilli tuffs, intensely deformed and metamorphosed to the formation of green phyllite schists.
The fine grained lapilli tuffs are composed of olivine xenocrysts, pyroxenes (monocline), pseudolucite and lapilli less than 1 cm in size, mixture of volcanic glass and ash with intrusions of olivine, pyroxenes, phlogopite, pseudoleucite of the massive and amygdaloidal structure. There are nodules of peridotite and dunite in the fine-grained lamproite tuffs.
The occurrence presents significant interest for discovery of endogenic diamond mineralization.
