This locality is mostly known for its andradite and magnetite. However, it also produces fine diopside like on this specimen. A dark green and partly gemmy, terminated crystal of diopside is sitting on a bed of tiny lustrous and gemmy light green crystals of epidote and is associated with nice, lustrous octahedrons of magnetite with beautiful patterns on their faces.
