Active quarry in albite aplitic granite ("feldspathite").
Not to be confused with the abandoned greisen quarry.

Notes:
1. Autunite and (meta)uranocircite are visually indistinguishable.
2. There is no evidence that the green U-micas are actually torbernites. EMPA-EDX analyses of J. Jirásek and D. Matýsek (VŠB-TU Ostrava) proved the composition of (meta)uranocircite.
