Lüneburger Heide, Lüneburg, Niedersachsen, Deutschland

A large heathland area, extending southwest to south of Lüneburg. Minerals reported from here have usually been found in glacial erratics and gravel pits and originate in Scandinavia. Chips of flint are ubiquitous. In some hollows between the hills, diatomite deposits have formed in lakes.
