Forekomsten ligger ved Beistadfjorden, ca. 6 km syd for Steinkjer, Sparbu. Bruddet er i dag ikke tilgjengelig, da en utvidelse av E6 har overdekket forekomsten. Kalkspatmarmoren er grovkrystallinsk, hvit med blågrå striper. Utpreget platemarmor. Platetykkelse oftest rundt 0,25 m. Dragets mektighet ca. 20 m. Marmoren er brukt til søyler i Nidarosdomen.
