White Rock of Grunj is a natural monument with the status of geological reservation, which is located within the commune of Manzalesti in Buzau county.
The Rock has a pyramidal shape.
A cross on the top of the Rock
A cross is placed on top of the natural monument.
It is made up of a rock formed by wind and hydraulic erosion and by the accumulation of white ash marl. Its pyramidal silhouette is glued to another rock formed by dacitic tuffs, from volcanic eruptions, white-gray-yellow, Tortonian age (Miocene period – about 20 million years ago), but also from sandstones with almost vertical position.
The name “Grunj” means “neck”, “narrowing”.
Specialists say that this rock will disappear in time due to erosion.
