Top best answers to the question «Where did the quarrying of spectrolite take place»
- Finnish geologist Aarne Laitakari (1890–1975) described the peculiar stone and sought its origin for years when his son Pekka discovered a deposit at Ylämaa in south-eastern Finland, while building the Salpa Line fortifications there in 1940. The quarrying of spectrolite began after the Second World War and became a significant local industry.
