Abandoned and active serpentinite quarries. The serpentinite is heavily tectonised and altered by hydrothermal processes and by weathering.
The locality is known for silica varieties (opal, chalcedony).

Located about 2 km NW of Dietmannsdorf an der Wild.

Notes on the mineral list: Kolitsch et al. (2018) also mention an unidentified nickel silicate.
