Mineralizations (quartz veins with fluorite) in cavernous dolomites of the Radstatt series, west of Kranzlhöhe mountain.

The vein system also covers the area of the Lungauer Kalkspitze and the Steirische Kalkspitze.

Located in the upper Forstau valley and north-west of the Steirische Kalkspitze (separate locality, in Styria).
