haggaeus: Po vice nez mesici zadna reakce, cache stale disablovana, archivovano.
durcja: diky za nabidku, ale adopce bez souhlasu vlastnika je celkem vyjimecna zalezitost s dost striktnimi pravidly - jedno z nich je, ze puvodni cache musi byt fyzicky na miste (byt treba ve spatnem stavu), jinak plati, ze neni co adoptovat a misto toho si muzes na uvolnenem miste zalozit vlastni cache - popsano napr. zde: http://wiki.geocaching.cz/wiki/Adopce_cache

Geocache Description:



Souradnice teto cache vas zavedou do mestecka jmenem Trebenice v Ceskem stredohori, v jehoz blizkem okoli se tezil a snad i stale tezi proslaveny Cesky granat.
Pokud chcete, muzete navstivit i blizke Muzeum ceskeho granatu, ve kterem si muzete prohlednou spousty sperku ci se dozvedet vice o tezbe ceskeho granatu. A pokud budete mit chvilku, muzete si dokonce nejake ty granatky pred muzeem sami vyryzovat ,-)

Pokud mate casu vice, doporucuji navstivit jeste nedalekou zriceninu hradu 'Kostalov', kde se nachazi i stejnojmenna cache. Zezhora je krasny vyhled na Trebenice a vubec na cele Ceske stredohori.

Historie ceskeho granatu
Predevsim jeho ohnive ruda barva, tvrdost a lesk po vybrouseni byla pricinnou tak velke obliby u cloveka. Proto se tento polodrahokam casto vyskytuje ve spercich, ale zdobi i nejruznejsi liturgicke predmety, dokonce je ozdobou korunovacnich klenot.
Pro sve esotericke, lecive i sperkarske vlastnosti si granatu ceni rovnez dalsi zeme v Evrope i mimo ni. V drivejsich dobach se granatu pripisovala kouzelna moc, jenz pusobi na vitalitu a inteligenci cloveka. Verilo se, ze pudi ze srdce smutek a cini sveho majitele veseleho a mileho.
Cesky granat se objevuje v archeologickych nalezech z doby Skytu (6-4. st. pr. Kr.). Anticky spisovatel Plinius starsi jej zahrnul spolecne s dalsimi cervenymi kameny pod nazev karbunkul. Ve stredoveku se pak cesky granat nazyval zrnakoc nebo jiskrik.
V 14. stoleti to byl prave Karel IV., kdo vyslal sve prvni prospektory. Naleziste se nachazeji na Kolinsku, dale pak v podhuri Ceskeho stredohori, v Podkrkonosi, v okoli Jicina a Stare Paky. U nas se granat zatim tezi v primarnich zminovanych loziscich. Vice je vsak tezen z tzv. granatoveho sterku. Mimo CR se pak tezi spolu s diamanty v Jihoafricke republice, USA (Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Arkansas, Nove Mexiko, Severni Karolina), Brazilii, Argentine, Australii a v Rusku.

Neco z mineralogickych informaci:
Odborny nazev tohoto kamenu je pyrop, ktery ma svuj puvod v rectine: pyr = ohen a ops = oko. Cesky granat patri do skupiny dalsich 16 granatu. Skupina se pak dale cleni do 5 podskupin: hlinite – pyropy, almandiny, spessartiny; vapenate – andradity, grossulary.
Pyropy se v prirode objevuji v pomerne malych zrnkach, Vybrouseny kamen o prumeru 7 mm je spise vzacnosti. Nejvetsi cesky granat s rozmery 35 x 25 x 18 mm je vsazen do briliantoveho radu Zlateho rouna, jenz je dnes ulozen v Grünes Gewölbe v Drazdanech.

Muzeum ceskeho granatu
Muzeum ceskeho granatu v Trebenicich se nachazi v budove byvaleho luteranskeho kostela. Zakladem muzea se stala sbirka zdejsiho lekare, vlastence a buditele V. Parika. Dnes je expozice v peci Okresniho vlastivedneho muzea v Litomericich.

Umisteni cache
Cache je mala krychlovita krabicka do mikrovlnky a je umistena MIMO AREAL muzea a tudiz je dostupna i v noci - jeji nalezeni by snad nemel byt zadny vetsi problem. Po zapsani do logu prosim cache vratte zpet na sve puvodni misto.

Coordinates take you to a small village Trebenice situated in the northern part of the Czech republic. In its neighbourhood was extract czech garnet. You can also visit Museum of bohemian garnet. There you can learn more about garnet and extraction and you can also see some jewellery there.

If you have more time I can recommend you to visit hill Kostalov, where is also placed a cache (same name as the hill)- And there is very nice view to Trebenice and scenery.

History
Red colour, temper and shine after polishing are the reasons why the garnet is so popular. This gamestone you can find on a jewellery, liturgy objects and also on a coronation jewels.
