The banded silicite of the Krzemionka type and dotted silicite of the Swieciechów type were intensively used for making axes during the Eneolithic Period. The presence of artifacts of the banded silicite of the Krzemionka type was confirmed in ten Moravian localities. On the basis of morphological and technical characteristics, as well as analogies, axes of the banded silicite should be linked with the Globular Amphora Culture (GAC). The GAC settlements, recognized in northern and central Moravia and in the adjacent part of Upper (Czech) Silesia, prove that contacts between these two units in question were stronger than so far believed. Axes of the spotted silicite, verified by petrographic analysis of finds from Lhotka, Nezamyslice, and Velehrad can be safely assign to the Corded Ware culture. Although rare, they clearly show the route of cultural contacts between Central Poland and Lower Austria. Axes made of the banded and spotted silicites confirm the importance of Moravia within the Central European zone of cultural development. During the Late Eneolithic Period this teritory abnsorbed influences from the south and from the north, Import of artifacts from Central Poland exemplifies this phenomenon
