Za odhalenim sopecne minulosti Uhlirskeho vrchu je vsak treba sejit do opusteneho lomu, ktery je chranen jako prirodni pamatka.
V lomu se odkryva asi 40 m vysoky prurez cervenym sopecnym tufem. Jsou to drobne utrzky lavy, ktere sopka vyvrhovala jeste ve zhavotekutem nebo plastickem stavu. Svedci o tom napriklad kapkovity tvar nekterych vetsich kamenu nebo zatocena vnitrni struktura, vytvorena rotaci pri pruletu atmosferou.

In this quarry you can see 40m high cross-section wall of red volcanical Tuff. Tuff is a type of rock consisting of consolidated volcanic ash ejected from vents during a volcanic eruption. Some volcanical stones which ejected from vents during eruption have drop shape or spiral internal structure, established of rotation at atmosphere transit.
