Bergarten er en middelskornet båndet gneis. Den har vekselvis mørke og lyse bånd som er ganske tynne (1-3 mm). Det er to drivere i bruddet. Dolset maskin driver den østre delen, mens Volda maskin driver den vestre. Begge driver kombinasjonsdrift pukk/murestein, men det er mest murestein å finne i den østlige delen.
Location
Bruddet ligger inntil R15 like vest for Naustdal i Nordfjord.
