Abandoned quarry in small serpentinite body, with pegmatite vein.
Located near Věžná village.

The serpentinite lies on the border between "strážecké moldanubikum" and "svratecké krystalinikum" units. Some minerals could be found, however do not expect aesthetic druses - usually it's pieces of "bronzite", opal, chalcedony, huntite or magnesite - so typical minerals for serpentinites.
