Kaolinitized granite pegmatites hosted in mica schist worked for gemstones (tourmalines, beryl).
The locality often named Antsofimbato consist actually of 4 different pegmatite quarries named Antsofimbato I, II, III and IV respectively. (The Antsofimbato IV is not identical with Guigues Antsofimbato IV which = Ambatonapetraka). These are situated close to each other between the village Ambatonapetraka and Mt. Antsofimbato, in the NE part of the Sahatany pegmatite Field, S of the town Antsirabe in the main highland of Madagascar.

The main quarry is located about 500 SE of the Ambatonapetraka pegmatites.

The bityite, chrysoberyl and magnesiotaaffeite-2N’2S has only been reported from the one of the pegmatites, designated P30 by Ranorosoa (1986) and Antsofimbato IV by Rasoanaivo et al. (1983). This pegmatite (Antsofimbato IV) was found and researched by "the mission géologique soviéto-malgache" in 1983 (Rasoanaivo et al. 1983).

Raktoarison (1964) locality nr 2.
Ranorosoa (1986): P26 and P30(= Antsofimbato sud).
