An excursion to the crystalline rocks of the Erzgebirge and Granulitgebirge offers the chance to see type-locality granulite, garnet peridotite, coesite-bearing eclogite, diamond-bearing gneiss and one of the few locations of prismatine in the space of a single day. In other parts of the world you can’t find this variety on the whole continent!
