home / agates worldwide / Europe / Germany / Thuringia / Mockzig

The agate nodules introduced here originate from a red-brown mica phorphyrite near to Mockzig, 3km southeast Altenburg. The size of the nodules can reach rarely up to 40mm. The intensive red coloration makes them particularly interesting. Beside nodules  here also vein agates occur.

Further data to the place of discovery are with pure Haake, “agates collect in Germany, part 1” page 71 - 72 (Bode publishing house, 2000)
