A former garnet mine, near to the bank of the creek “Kaninger Bach” in the northern outskirts of Radenthein at N46.80281 E13.70385.

It was operated from the 17th century till 1909. The garnets (Laufenberger Granat) were shipped to Bohemia for cutting and setting and were sold as Bohemian Granat (Böhmischer Granat) like the ones from the nearby location Lucknergraben.

One of the adits was converted into a tourist attraction called “Granatium”.

Paleozoic

ID: 1382151
Paleozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Age: Paleozoic (252.17 - 541 Ma)

Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.

Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
