Berg Allzunah, Hermannsacker, Harz, Thüringen, Deutschland


An outcrop of melaphyre is located north of the village Hermannsacker, west of the road to Breitenstein (called "Nordhäuser Heerstraße") and north of the castle ruin Ebersburg. Agate almonds and also (much more frequent) such with a filling of carbonates (ankerite, siderite, calcite) can be found at the hill, named Allzunah in the boulders. The size of the almonds can reach up to about 50x30x20 cm (!), however the most are around 1 cm and less. Some of them are including smoky quartz, amethyst and accessorily baryte or hematite. Finely dispersed hematite gives even the barren carbonate filled almonds an attractive look (sometimes).
