Description
Bergarten er en middelskornet grå, båndet gneis bestående av hovedmineralene feltspat og kvarts. Også endel mm-store korn av rød granat finnes i bergarten, og den har tydelig foliasjon. Her produseres murestein til grovere murer, og det som ikke kan brukes til murer blir knust og brukes som pukk.
