Description The Dřínová Hill was named after “dřín”, which is Czech name for Cornelian cherry (Cornus mas), a shrub growing on arid calcareous soils. The quarry was originally opened for limestone mining, both the over- and the underlying non-lime rocks were exposed with the progress of the mining. Nowadays, the quarry is still active and produces different types of crushed stone, especially from the underlying granodiorite rocks.
