Meteorite impact

This special breccia (Breksjestein), also known as Gardnos impact breccia, was formed about 540 million years ago by a meteorite impact. The meteorite had an estimated diameter of 200 to 300 meters and created the 5 km wide Gardnos crater in Nesbyen, Hallingdal in Norway.

Huge forces

When this stone was first discovered, it was thought to have volcanic origins.  In 1990, scientists discovered the opposite. The force of the meteorite impact shattered the underlying rock and forced it into the ground. Here it filled up cracks and holes which together created the breccia.

Gardnos impact crates

 The rock consists of angular, whitish, granitic stains in a black carbon-rich matrix.  Gardnos is one of the most accessible meteorite craters in the world and freely accessible to visitors.
