Outcrop of altered basalt.


Furthermore, a complex of abandoned underground quarries known as Cave di Prun, recently turned into a tourist attraction, is located to the north of the village of Prun. These quarries were exploited from the 18th century to the 1950s to produce a dimension stone known as "Prun Stone" or "Lessinia Stone" (a marly-limestone, varying in colour from reddish to pink to white-greyish, which occurs as a sequence of regular layers, 3 to 40 cm thick, separated from each other by thin layers of clay).
