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.
