Brandberg, Leoben, Steiermark, Österreich


Heavily oxidised siderite deposit located NW of Leoben and E of St. Peter-Freienstein, on the SW slope of the Bärnerkogel.
Hosted in phyllitic rocks of the greywacke zone ('Grauwackenzone').

Known especially for nice secondary apatite (white, globular or in sprays) and jarosite, found in (dangerous) underground workings.
