Vlčí hora (Wolf Hill, elevation 704 m above sea level) is constituted from two similar volcanic effusions of Tertiary olivinic nephelinites with irregular bodies of pyroclastic rocks. The volcanic body (1,5 × 2,5 km) intersects chloritic-sericitic phyllites of west Bohemian Proterozoic series. Altered pyroclastic rocks contain well-shaped phenocrysts of clinopyroxene and amphibole (oxykaersutite) up to 5 cm (max. 10 cm) large. Accessory olivine crystals up to 4 cm large have 84 % of forsterite component.
Located near Stříbro.
