Valley immediately SSE of Bad Harzburg; mica peridotite lenses in norite. Locality is listed as Kaltes Tal ("Cold valley"; see reference), but a local collector suggested the mica peridotite (locally called "Glimmernorit") might instead be from the Noritsteinbruch in Radautal, a few km S of Kaltes Tal.
