Latitude & Longitude (decimal): 47.67306,15.92472
GeoHash:G#: u27r4qs58
Locality type:Quarry
Köppen climate type:Dfb : Warm-summer humid continental climate


Abandoned quarry in riebeckite gneiss (probably a former meta-rhyolite, see Phadke, 1967).

Publication in preparation (Kolitsch, Bernhard & Schachinger, 2007-2011); it will report several new finds and show that the kobeite-(Y) described in the literature was erroneously reported.

Since 2012 this quarry is unfortunately filled up with excavated material from the Semmering basis tunnel (Lower Austrian side).
