Outcrops and accumulations of boulders of Lower Triassic quartzites (Semmering quartzite) with finely dispersed lazulite and subordinate lazulite-bearing quartz veinlets. Located ca. 2 km SSW of Fischbach, ca. 200 m ENE of Anger. The area covers a strip ca. 200 m long (E-W) and ca. 100 m wide (N-S). Coordinates give the approximate center of the area at an elevation of ca. 920 m asl.
