The locality is situated NW of Nedvedice village. The easist way to access this site is to go from the village main crossing the direction to Pernstejn and Vezna and on the next crossing (on the right is small cross and some trees) you turn to the right and follow the old asphalt road. The asphalt ends at the abandoned Obecni quarry (see Mindat locality). Then you follow the forest road, keep the small creek on your left side. After a couple of hundreds meters the road is crossing the creek. The site is at the right side right bellow the small cliff. Beware of falling rocks, especially if someone is digging there!
Locality with metamorphosed fluorite layer in leucocratic slightly pink or orange orthogneiss. The orthogneiss is extremely hard and without explosives it is almost impossible to collect any samples except micromounts. The fluorite is found in narrow fissures.
