The Žermanice locality represents the best-exposed example of the meta-basaltoid/meta-gabbroic rock type of the teschenite association. It forms a subhorizontal volcanic body (sill) 27–30 m thick. The subvolcanic rock is inhomogeneous and slightly differentiated. The predominant rock type is a basaltoid (diabase-dolerite), medium-grained, speckled, mesocratic rock exhibiting an evident subophitic texture. Miarolitic cavities are abundant in some places. The major rock constituents are albite, microcline, chlorite, and pyroxene, as well as analcime and plagioclase in places. The accessory magmatic phases are biotite, ilmenite, fluorapatite, sulphides, Ti-rich magnetite, Nb-rich baddeleyite, and chevkinite–(Ce) or perrierite–(Ce). A large extent of alteration is evident from the presence of chloritization, albitization of plagioclases, and zeolitization (analcimization). 207Pb common lead-corrected U–Pb apatite dating yields a weighted mean age of 120.4 ± 9.6 Ma, which corresponds to the middle Aptian. The igneous body is at most ca. 10 Ma younger than the surrounding late Hauterivian sediments and might have been emplaced into unconsolidated or partly consolidated sediments.
