Granite outcrops.
Uranium mineralisation (meta-uranocircite) in tectonised zones was described from a small quarry, used for gravel extraction, in gravely two-mica granite on Eichberg Mountain (located NNE of Unterlembach, West of Gmünd).

The quarry from where the minerals were recorded has been back-filled and recultivated. There are more recent quarries in the close vicinity but no mineral records from those exist as yet.

NOTE: Not to be mixed up with the village "Eichberg" East of Unterlembach.
