Larvikite quarry now filled up with waste rock from Saga 1 and Sagåsen. Poor in minerals compared to Saga 1 and Sagåsen Quarries. The berborite-bearing pegmatite was a flat-lying dike about 0.5 m thick (Giuseppetti et al., 1991).

Detailed Mineral List:

Berborite
Formula: Be2(BO3)(OH,F) · H2O
Habit: Berborite-1 T: trigonal pyramids; trigonal prisms. Berborite-2T: pedion, hexagonal pyramid modified with a trigonal pyramid
Colour: colorless transparent
Description: Berborite-1T and-2 T occurs as crystals up to 5mm. The 2 polytypes occures often in intergrown groups. Pedial faces are often shining but other faces may be somewhat dull and frosty.
