The province of Salzburg stands out due to its particularly
large diversity of minerals – attributable to a complex geological
situation. Emeralds, rock crystals, fluorite, titanite,
adularia, epidote – many different minerals in a small area.
Minerals originated and originate through complex processes
over millions of years in so called crevices (rock crystal,
adularia, fluorite …), or are formed in rocks (emerald, pyrite,
actinolite, …). Through the process of erosion the minerals
find their way to the surface.
