Calcite crystals from the black forest
The quarry of Grimmelshofen is located in the southern black forest aside of the B314 between Stühlingen and Blumberg. The quarry is working on limestone. The excavated material is used for construction issues. The mine is working on several levels. Especially the lower regions of the mine contain clefts and pockets with nice Calcite crystals. The pockets size ranges between some centimetres up to whole systems with 5m and more. Most of the caves are completely filled up with mud which helps during the excavation of Calcite specimen.
