Between the Habach and Hollersbach Valleys in the state of Salzburg is the Pinzgau administrative district, in which can be found some mines producing gemstone quality emerald specimens, however they are rare and generally small. However, excellent collector specimens can be found, generally up to 3 centimeters.

The region is significant with regard to antiquities, as it is believed that prior to the middle ages, only Austria and Egypt were known to produce emeralds. Still, the quality of such specimens are considered inferior when compared to their larger and more ideal cousins from Colombia.
