Geocache Description:


[ENGLISH]


Between the villages of Osvetimany and Medlovice lies the only locality with porcelain jasper (porcellanite) in Moravia - Medlovice quarry. Local people call it "red quarry" because of its brick-red color. The history of this quarry is not very long. The mining began before World War II; the mined material was used for hardening roads and making decorations. Quarry was abandoned in late seventies.

Porcellanite is a chert-looking mineral. It arose during panon when clays were sedimenting with beds of lignite in shallow boundary depressions. Clays were burned after burn-out of lignite bed and porcellanite was made. The most interesting part of quarry is a 50-meter long quarry wall, which represents a cut through the rest of the unique occurrence of porcellanite in its full profile, including zones of contact with subsoil and burden.

To log this earthcache find, you must fulfill the following requirements:
1. In your log entry, upload a picture of yourself and your GPSr in front of the quarry wall.
2. Send me via email: How high is the quarry wall a and how large is the surface of the quarry ? What is lignite ?

Please note that the logs which will not comply with the above mentioned requirements will be deleted.

Po vyhorení lignitové sloje došlo k vypálení puvodních jílu a vzniku porcelanitu. Nejcennejší cást lokality tvorí lomová stena cca 50 m dlouhá, která reprezentuje prurez zbytkem jedinecného výskytu porcelanitu v úplném profilu, vcetne zón kontaktu s nadložím a podložím.
