The Waschleithe W-skarn - a distal relative of skarns in the Schwarzenberg district, western Erzgebirge, Germany?Reinhardt, N.; Burisch, M.; Frenzel, M.ORC; Gutzmer, J.ORC; Meinert, L. D.; Gerdes, A.
The Waschleithe skarn located near Schwarzenberg in eastern Germany hosts sub-economic polymetallic W-Zn-Pb-Cu-Fe mineralisation. Its mineralogy is dominated by prograde clinopyroxene and subordinate garnet. The garnet and pyroxene colours of this skarn as well as low garnet/pyroxene ratios are typical for distal skarn settings. Ore minerals (magnetite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, pyrite, scheelite) in the prograde skarn do not show a clear association with the weakly developed retrograde overprint consisting mainly of late chlorite and calcite.
