Hafnium contents and Zr/Hf ratios were studied in zircons and their parent rocks from three magmatic suites associated with the Teplice caldera, Eastern Erzgebirge: rhyolite and dacite from the peraluminous Schönfeld Unit, relatively younger A-type Teplice rhyolite, and post-caldera A-type biotite and zinnwaldite granite and greisen. New data suggest that zircon crystallizing from a geochemically less evolved volatile- and water-poor melt is, compared to the host rock, relatively Hf-depleted, while zircon crystallizing from an evolved volatile- and water-rich melt has a Zr/Hf value approximately identical to that of the parental melt. Zr/Hf values in zircon did not change substantially either during greisenization, or during low-temperature alteration after metamictization. Zr/Hf values in the whole rock may serve as a sensitive indicator of magmatic fractionation of evolved granitic melts, as they are only negligibly influenced by the following hydrothermal processes. Zr/Hf values in individual cogenetic zircon grains are scattered but their general evolution trend in the rock series is consistent with the evolution of the whole-rock Zr/Hf values.
