Andesite quarry with a lot of cavity filling minerals.
The andesite quarry is located between Kopasz Hill and Fekete Hill (see coordinates). In a 10-15 m long zone, the andesite is impregnated with hyalite (opal-AN). In this zone, wonderful hyalite specimens have been found in 2013, that caused the interest of collectors.

The water-clear hyalites sometimes cover carbonates, mostly aragonite and calcite, which cause the covered specimens to show yellow fluorescence under UV-A light beside the strong green fluorescence under UV-C light.

In the quarry explosives are used to excavate the rocks, so most of the specimens are damaged, unfortunately. Also, no collecting is permitted for anybody since summer 2015, which makes getting good quality specimens even harder.

Baron György Majláth opened his first quarry in 1861, from 1927 the Kopasz-hill quarry was operated as a large-scale mine.
