The Wannenköpfe
Ochtendung, Eifel region, Germany


A visit in august 2006


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. At the end of the day, a bucket full with interesting little xenoliths/pieces of xenoliths. First results: nice protodolomite/calcite (??) on Amphibole, again nice Jeremejevites (Sea mine models), Pseudobrookite and Sodalite. I'll keep you informed.

6 sept. 06: more and more small but nice Jeremejevites ... "sea-mine" model, sometimes 2 in one tiny cavity.

18 sept. 06: and then they are back again ... new nice Muscovite aggregates, with the typical "cock's comb" form.

25 sept. 06: nice Hematite skeletons.

2 okt. 06: some pictures of Protodolomite/Calcite on Amphibole, later more information.

16 okt. 06: Biotite, Mullite and Corundum.
