Huge abandoned limestone quarry in the side of the Hády hill. Limestones are mostly Devonian with some fossills like molluscs, brachiopods and rarely trilobites. On the top level are also some Jurassic limestones with ammonites, molluscs, brachiopods and shark teeth.

In Devonian limestones calcite veins are present, sometimes forming vugs with calcite and rarely also quartz crystals. In Jurassic limestone are vugs with calcite more rare, on some places is green celadonite occuring.
