Querbitzsch Kaolin Mine

The German kaolin mines produce a unique group of thundereggs, clearly from the same geology, yet showing some distinct differences as well. They are characterised by an extremely weathered and crumbly matrix that is heading for white. Often incomplete or damaged, they can still be extraordinarily beautiful. The Querbitzsch specimens are often crystalline with inclusions and the agate reduced to thin bands, if it is there at all. They can also be quite colourful with green or bright red mineralisation.

The kaolin egg deposits in this geological area are also one of the sources of the Saxony gravelpits, especially Bokelwitz and Otterwisch.
