The similar to 30 Ma Stolpen Volcano near Dresden (Saxony) is situated at the western
margin of the Lausitz Volcanic Field. It forms a small isolated basaltic hill, the
famous Stolpen Castle Hill, penetrating the granodioritic basement of the Lausitz
Block and is worldwide the type locality for the term 'basalt', as coined by Agricola
(1546). The volcano has always been interpreted as subvolcanic crypto-or lava dome.
