The Kemmlitz kaolin field in Saxony in the vicinity of Meissen is the area with the most important fine ceramic kaolins in Germany. This is substantiated by a series of specific properties, due to which these kaolins are highly suitable for various porcelains and other fine ceramic products. The original stone in this case is a volcanic prehistoric rock, in which the kaolinized rhyolites—due to erosion and the effect of the ice masses of the last Ice Age—are to be found in synclines of varying sizes. For the purposes of industrial extraction this means that the raw material source in Kemmlitz occurs in several small-sized, unconnected opencast mines.
