The Wannenköpfe
Ochtendung, Eifel region, Germany


My latest visit (august 2007)


Nothing changed .... the good spots are covered with meters of rubble. You have to work for hours to get on solid rock, and go for new fresh xenoliths. But ..... they are still there .... nice xenoliths, with very nice specimens !!

First results: beautiful Muskovite, Hematite, some Rutile and (of course) ... Jeremejevite specimens.

22 september ..... nice "rounded" Biotite crystals.
14 november ...... tiny Rutile crystals and some nice aggregates.
