Geologic

Quartz deposit in Šajdíkove Humence arose approximately 100.000 years ago during ice age (young Pleistocene during Quaternary). Sands from riverbeds of streams of melted ice and snow were blown to dunes up to 30 metres high, which consisted of sand grains almost equal in size. Due to transportation by wind the sand grains are fairly round and their surface is extraordinarily smooth.

 

These features make quartz sand from Šajdíkove Humence the best foundry sand in Slovakia wished for outside Slovakia too and gradually finding use in the glass industry as well.
