Granulite outcrop, Waldheim, Döbeln, Saxony, Germany

Name(s) in local language(s): Granulitaufschluss, Waldheim, Döbeln, Sachsen, Deutschland
 
Outcrop of a hydrothermally altered granulite, located just east of the Waldheim freight depot. Today inaccessible.
Located about 10 km SW of Döbeln.

Prismatine from this locality was considered as kornerupine for a long time, before it was eventually recognised as a new mineral. Older specimens, therefore, may still be labelled as kornerupine. The latter, however, does not occur here.
