|Name(s) in local language(s):||Litice nad Orlicí|
Active quarry opened body of so-called Litice granite. It is biotitic granodiorite passing to leucogranite. Litice massif is strongly tectonically ruptured. Hydrothermal veins of carbonates with fluorite-baryte mineralization (+ sulphides etc.) are developed. From boreholes are known calcium silicate rocks from contact with metamorphic rocks of Zábřeh Series.
