About this book

Language: German

The Hunsrück is known worldwide as an outstanding gemstone and fossil depository. The author of this guide takes his readers on a journey through 400 million years history of the earth, a terrific insight into the time when Central Europe and the Hunsrück were still covered by a tropical sea. Foray through the "geological backbone" of the Hunsrück landscape, on the quarzite hills of the Idarwald, Gemünden and Idar-Oberstein, to the deposits of the Hunsrück slate, whose fossils are unique in the world.

Summary in German:
Der Hunsrück ist weltweit als herausragende Edelstein- und Fossillagerstätte bekannt. Der Verfasser unternimmt mit den Lesern eine Reise durch 400 Millionen Jahre Erdgeschichte, die grandiose Einblicke in die Zeit, als Mitteleuropa und der Hunsrück noch von einem tropischen Meer bedeckt waren, eröffnet. Die Streifzüge führen durch das „geologische Rückgrat“ der Hunsrücklandschaft, über die quarzitenen Höhenzüge des Idarwaldes, Gemünden und Idar-Oberstein bis hin zu den Lagerstätten des Hunsrück-Schiefers, dessen Fossilien weltweit einmalig sind.
