Neighbouring regions:


An ancient and historic mining town, known since 1336 and, in modern times, extended up to its maximum by Ceausescu's mining policies.
Located 30 km east of Baia Mare and famous for its deposits of lead, zinc, manganese, as well as small quantities of gold, silver, barium, and antimony.
Samples of exceptional beauty and value have been extracted from the mines of this locality, present in major worldwide collections.
In particular, the mines have produced the world's most beautiful tetrahedrites, by size, arrangement, and lustre.

Current situation: since 2008 all the mines are closed; adits are sealed, water pumps are off and the external structures demolished or about to be demolished.

For several years rumours persist about foreign investors, but they are slow to manifest themselves in reality.

Formerly known as Kapnik, Hungary (during the Austro-Hungarian empire).

Smoky quartz specimen showing split growth ("artichoke quartz") like the one on the photo are artificially irradiated. Photos of such specimens should be labeled "quartz", not "smoky quartz".
