English: The stone waterfall was formed 4 million years ago from basalt lava, which solidified in volcanic crater under the Earth surface. The five- and six-hedral jointing had originated by slow lava cooling, characteristic of basalt. However, such a crooked form is unique all over Europe.These basalt columns were discovered by the raw material mining using it for building the Šomoška Castle.
Slovenčina: Kamenný vodopád vznikol pred 4 miliónmi rokov z bazaltovej lávy, ktorá stuhla v kráteri bývalej sopky pod pozemským povrchom. Päť- až šesťboká stĺpovitá odlučnosť sa vytvára pri pomalom chladnutí lávy, je charakteristická pre bazalt, avšak v takejto ohnutej forme sa radí medzi európske unikáty. Bazaltové stĺpy boli odkryté ťažbou suroviny pri výstavbe hradu.
