In the construction of forest roads (1989), was captured a piece of wood opal, which was followed by construction equipment unfolding at approximately 15 m area of ​​forest roads. Currently the site is already very overgrown with grass and fallen leaves clogged so that the findings are rather nice random samples. Maybe during the removal of timber, when the road surface is seamy towed timber.
