large crystals. Most likely, the stone lies in its original place because it has considerably sunk into the earth and it has steadily settled in relation to the slope which leads to the conclusion that it has not been moved.

Narrative

On the surface of the stone there is one ancient cavity of a very good quality — 6 cm in the diameter, 1 cm deep. However, on the N side of the stone there is another cavity, which is 7 cm in the diamtre and 1 cm deep. In some other places on the stone there might be features of possible cavities. The cup-marked stone certainly adds to the number of stones with hollows that can be rather frequently encountred in the vicinity and it is rather indicative that nearby there is another stone.
