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.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Mesoproterozoic
1000 - 1600 Ma
Mesoproterozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Description: Sveconorwegian Complex

Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.

Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
