Several minor lenses of dolomitic marble were documented during the detailed geological mapping of the sheet 32-122 Zbytiny (South Bohemia). One of them is located to the north of Záblatí. It is composed of dolomitic marble enclosed in refoliated biotite-cordierite migmatites of the Moldanubian Unit. Accessory silicate mineral assemblage phlogopite-forsterite-clinohumite-chlorite in marble is described, together with young Alpine-type low-temperature fissure mineralization bearing pink clinozoisite, quartz, prehnite, calcite, and K-Ba-feldspars. The mineralogical locality presented is one of historical remnants of mining activities in the region.
