Click here for a list of articles that are not under construction but have had at least their first drafts finished.

This article is a place holder and needs someone to take it in hand and finish the first draft. If you would like to take this article in hand, leave a reply message below or contact Rock Currier via private message by clicking on the PM button next to my name at the top of the article.

Can you help make this a better article? What good localities have we missed? Can you supply pictures of better specimens than those we show here? Can you give us more and better information about the specimens from these localities? Can you supply better geological or historical information on these localities? After each set of pictures there should be some descriptive text. If none appears it means that we need someone to tell us about the specimens from that locality and something about the geology of the occurrence.

Ok Rock; from all of that places I would say that these are of significant importance:
- Gypsum "roses" at Pöttsching [www.mindat.org], Zillingtal [www.mindat.org] , Sooß near Baden (not yet on mindat but they are really pretty roses), Mannersdorf [www.mindat.org]
- Pfennigbach [www.mindat.org] with xtls up to 10cm
- Salt mines like Hallein [www.mindat.org], Hall [www.mindat.org], Ebensee [www.mindat.org], Hallstatt [www.mindat.org]

But I`m quite sure I forgot some (Bosruck???) as gypsum isn`t really my mineral.

Christian,
Thanks for the good information. It will be waiting here for the person who decides to write Best Minerals, Austria. What I have done is just a place holder. This is a place where knowledgeable people like you can tell us of shortcomings and hopefully be encouraged to work on the article.

Hello Rock!

About Pöttsching: This locality is an abandoned Lignite-deposite. Typical for this occurrence are bright yellow-brownish "Gypsumroses". Interessting is, that a part of the dump was burning. So you can discover burnt Gypsumand this is now a pseudomorph of a mixture of Gypsum and Bassanite. [www.mindat.org] I know Josef personally and I ask him if he can make a better photo of this specimen.

I think there is a mistake about the locality in the Ziller valley. There is definitive no occurrence of this kind of Gypsum in the Ziller valley. This specimen is typical for Pötsching or Zillingtal. In german "Zillertal" sounds like "Zillingtal". The Ziller valley, Tyrol is in the central part of the Austrian Alps and it is famous for Amethys, Haematite, Apatite, etc. in alpine clefts. Zillingtal, Burgenland is in the east of Austria. Between this two localitys are 400 km! Zillingtal is an abandoned Lignite-deposite.

I added the locality Sooß, Baden-district, Lower Austria. It's a colsed clay-openpit.

Martin,
Thanks for the good information about Austrian gypsum. I am sure that the person writing the article on Austrian gypsums will want to include your information in the article. This points out the value of creating place holders for various minerals. It is a place where people like you can chip in information and help make the articles better.
