Basaltbruch, Weitendorf, Wildon, Graz, Steiermark, Österreich


A quarry in andesitic basalt.
Famous for nice chalcedony, aragonite, and zeolites (e.g., ferrierite).
Located at N46.89545 E15.44513, about 1.5 km west of Weitendorf (west of Wildon and around 17 km south of Graz).

You may also find fossils like Turritella, Athleta and Tibia Dentata at this quarry. Situation 2016: Fossils occur again in a freshly excavated spot, within dense clay.
