Steinbruch Petersberg, Petersberg, Halle, Sachsen-Anhalt, Deutschland


Active quartz-porphyry quarry.
Located SW of Petersberg village, about 10 km north of Halle.
Famous for excellent rosettes of platy synchysite-(Ce) and epidote-allanite-series minerals.

Currently (2007-2010), collecting is only allowed at specific dates (http://www.mdb-gmbh.de/webseiten/html/aktuelles.asp).
