Many minerals that are described in the literature from "Bamble" are from the geographical and political unity called Bamble in the County of Telemark, but the designation "Bamble" may also (especially in geological litterature) refer to a geological term and area called "the Bamble sector", a high grade metamorphic gneiss terrain in the southern Norway that covers a much larger area from Lillesand in the southwest and to Bamble in the northeast. Thus minerals found in the Bamble sector (geological term) are not listed under the "Bamble sector" but under the hierarchy here in Mindat that is: locality name, community, county, Norway.
