Serpentinbruch, Pingendorf, Drosendorf-Zissersdorf, Waldviertel, Niederösterreich, Österreich


Abandoned serpentinite quarry, with occurrences of vermiculite and anthophyllite.
Leucocratic plagioclasite veins and amphibolite also occur.
Although the quarry is long abandoned, zeolites may still be found after hard work.

Located east of Pingendorf and south of Zissersdorf.
