Small bodies of mafic intrusions occur in the Krušné hory/Erzgebirge near Plešivec and Abertamy and near Mariánské Lázně. They are comparable in mineral composition, textures and geochemistry with redwitzites from Oberpfalz in Germany. This observation points out to a broad distribution of mafie precursors (about 325 Ma old) of Late Variscan granites in the NW part of the Bohemian Massif extending to the Western pluton of the Krušné hory/Erzgebirge batholith.
