Two intersecting kimberlite pipes, intruded into Lower Ordovician limestone. The pipes contain diamond eclogite, dunite and peridotite xenoliths and are mined in an open pit more than 600 metres deep.
Discovered in 1955, started production in 1971.

Eclogites are rich in intergranular sulfides (pyrrhotite, pyrite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite, cubanite, djerfisherite) associated with magnetite.
