A quarry in miocenic Waipoua basalt. Located at Aranga near Hood Road, about 35 km north of Dargaville.

Site known for large cavities filled with zeolites, spectacular calcite crystals, and one of few sites in the world cavansite is found.

Calcite is found often as dog toothed crystals and pinacoid, and less commonly pseudo cubes and interpenetrating twins. Chabazite is common at the location, found in basement greenish rocks in fracture veins, sometimes with flecks of native copper within and under the crystals. Calcite lines vugs and cavities. Garronite associated with chabazite and mixed with gobbinsite. The crystals of both gobbinsite and garronite bladed, compact or loosely radiating. Levyne is greenish basalt vugs as colourless tabular crystals on edge. Thomsonite as white, colourless, blue-green botryoids, or brown bladed crystals, compact, helectitic on balls of thomsonite, or loosely radiating.
