    Moosmann legend of the "black stone"The wife of the Moosmännlein had become ill to die. She lay on a bed of luminescent moss, moaning and whimpering, while the mossy little girl lamented his heartache to the animals of the forest.When a mendicant came through the forest, the moss-monk stopped him, complained to him of his sorrow, and cordially begged him to give his dying wife the desired last blessing. As a reward, he also wanted to fill his entire coat bag full of leaves.Although the monk knew of the talk of the people who told themselves that the moss people gave out foliage for gratitude in gratitude, turning to gold at home, he did not believe it in his pride and harshly drove the little man as he did so dying woman refused the last blessing.Enraged by so much ruthlessness and inhumanity, the little man said: "As hard as a stone is your heart, monk, you shall become wholly stone, and stand here for all eternity." All reminder, equally hard-hearted to other people are."The moss woman died. And between Falkenstein and Grünbach is still the fossilized monk, the "Black Stone". His face can still be seen and with a little luck you will find luminescent moss there.
