Abstract (in english)
   Skarns occurring in western Moravia at carbonate/amphibolite contacts have the same character as skarns developed at the contact of carbonate rocks with gneisses and schists. The skarns in the Brunovistulicum at Krhovice, being typical oxidized iron ore skarns, mostly consist of andradite. After their formation they were, along with the amphibolites hosting them, affected by regional metamorphism. The skarns at Mirošov in the Strážek Moldanubicum mostly consist of grossular-andradite. They postdate regional metamorphism. They developed without any appreciable ore input. They formed at contacts of amphibolites with marble intercalation in them an are of bimetasomatic type. The metasomatism probably was promoted by an input of igneous fluids which possibly were genetically linked with a pegmatite magma which intruded the amphibolites
