home / agates worldwide / Europe / Germany / Palatinate / Imsbach, Pfaelzisches Bergbau Museum

Around the village Imsbach at the Donnersberg in Palatia an extensive area is situated, in which in earlier times intensive mining industry on silver, non-ferrous metals and iron was going on. Also several places of discovery for agates (Langheckerhof and Katharinental) are in the proximity. Integrated in the event-concept “Bergbau Erlebnis Welt Imsbach” (“mining industry experience world Imsbach”) is beside these pits, which can be partly visited by interested one, also the “Pfälzisches Bergau Museum” ( the “Palatinate mining industry museum”). Agates of the surrounding places of discovery can be admired here.

At present (2012) a highly interesting special exhibition takes place: " Pictures within the stone - the agate place of discovery Karrenberg Quarry near Reichweiler and its minerals”. The presentation is shown from April, the 22nd until Oktober, the 30st.

Further agates of the Karrenberg quarry and a detailied documentation of this place of discovery are presented here.
