Hirschbergmühle (Amphibolitaufschluß), Wolfsbach, Drosendorf-Zissersdorf, Waldviertel, Niederösterreich, Österreich


Outcrop of prehnite-bearing amphibolite at a forestry road ca. 1 km W of Wolfsbach (3 km SE Drosendorf), at a distinct right bend of the road; approximately between Wolfsbach and Hirschbergmühle (WSW of Wolfsbach).

Minerals in narrow clefts and mineralised zones.
Best finds were made in the 1980s when the forestry road was enlarged. Now hard work is necessary for good finds.
