A small north-eastern part of the Ramberg granite pluton is modified to a greisen rock due to a pneumatolytic process. This greisen never was object of mining activities. Nevertheless, certain minerals can be found on massive rocks and smalls rocks scattered on the forest ground. To collect these minerals heavy tools are required. The adit of the modern Hohe Warte Mine touches this greisen (and a calcsilicate skarn) on his way to the Hohe Warte vein. Because of that, with much luck one can find some of this material on the dump of this mine.
