New finds of rosette-like aggregates of quartz crystals in Schlier.
Access to outcrops was possible due to extremely low water level of the Enns where it is crossed by the A1 Highway bridge.

The locality is an area in different parts of the river, all very close: Enns in Upper Austria plus Ennsdorf and Kötting in Lower Austria.
