"Lucky for the construction to God in Gaisberg"In the sandstone embedded mica leaflets, shiny charcoal, so-called Zugstein and Schwefelkiese awoke again and again the hope to find ores or even precious metals in the rock. Prelate Oetinger in Murrhardt knew how to arouse interest and enthusiasm for mining companies around the year 1772.Dubious lucky knights joined the movement. Various galleries were created. Among other things, this also about 22 meters in length. With allegedly successful melt trials, new investors were won over and over again. In 1776, however, hope faltered and mining attempts ceased.Among the financiers was Captain Johann Kaspar Schiller, the father of Friedrich Schiller. Even his invested money was lost and "Spiegelberg" was in the house Schiller associated with no good memory. Friedrich Schiller called in his "robbers" then worst villain "Spiegelberg".de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die_Räuber
