Eroded tuffs of carbonatite and phonolite volcanism with several eruptive centres. Megacrysts (sanidine, augite) and xenoliths (Devonian basement, mica schist, crystalline schist, gneiss, sanidinite, subvolcanite, carbonatite-like rocks) on the fields in the area called “Auf Dickel”, as well as north of Nonnental.
Located about 500 – 1000 m NW and W of Rockeskyll, on the east slope of Rockeskyller Kopf mountain.
