At the Spitzleithe an iron mining area was existing which was part of the Schneeberg mining district. The biggest mine in that area was the Gott segne beständig Fundgrube, known as the type locality for lithiophorite. In the old literature lots of pseudomorphs are mentioned: lithiophorite, hematite, asbolane and quartz after calcite as well as hematite and quartz after pyromorphite.
