Geocache Description:

[CZ] Geologicke prirodni utvary pripominajici slunecni kotouce.
[EN] Nature formation looking like sunshine



U Hnojnickeho potoka se nachazi zbytky stareho, davno neuzivaneho lomu. Ten byl jiz roku 1966 vyhlasen narodni prirodni pamatkou, aby se zde chranily unikatni geologicke utvary, nemajici v Cechach konkurenci. Pri davne tezbe zde totiz diky tehdy jeste setrnym technologiim byla v lomove stene odhalena v ukazkove podobe tzv. Kamenna slunce.
Geologicka minulost Ceskeho stredohori nebyla prave klidna. Cela krajina je dodnes poznamenana bourlivou vulkanickou aktivitou. Tolik atraktivni kuzelovite kopce vycnivajici z roviny teto casti severozapadnich Cech jsou ve skutecnosti cedicove sopouchy vznikle ve tretihorach sopecnou cinnosti. Kdyz se tenkrat zhave magma prodiralo kridovymi sedimenty druhohorniho more k povrchu, strhavalo sebou i horniny tvrdsí, starsí a soudrznejsi. Tyto rozzhavene a s magmatem vymrstene "kameny" dopadly do zhave lavy, kde chladly jinou (mensi) rychlosti nez hmota která je obklopovala a tim se soustredne kolem nich vytvarely paprscité praskliny. Vznikly tak utvary pripominajici slunecni kotouc (kamenné jádro), od ktereho se rozbihaji dlouhe paprsky (praskliny v okolni hornine).
Kamenna slunce se ve stene pomalu zanikajiciho lomu vyskytuji v mnoha velikostech. Zpocatku jsou viditelna jen ta vetsi. Pri blizsim a peclivejsim hledani je vsak mozne videt i mala, jen nekolikacentimetrova slunicka. Jadra nekterych slunci jsou dnes již duta, nebot kámen zvetral, rozdrolil se a vypadl. Ve stredu jinych slunci vsak jadra v ruznem stadiu eroze stale drzi.

The Kamenna slunce (“Stone suns”) is a place hidden in the national park Ceske stredohori and it is itself a national natural monument. The name “Stone suns” is derived from the shape, 20 centimeters wide heart with radial raptures around. Once you decide to see it, set off from the village Hnojnice. There is not any official tourist path nearby; hence that gives to the place even more mystery.
