The paper represents the geophysical and geomechanical characteristics of gabbro from the locality Pantelej in Macedonia. This gabbro is wide spread and it intruded in Paleozoic chlorite - sericite and graphite schists. In the area of the monastery Pantelej, above the gabbro lay sandstone and limestone from Upper Eocene and in some parts are intruded by the products of Kratovo - Zletovo volcanism. The age of the gabbro is determined as Jurrasic. Analysing the geophysical characteristics, suitable methods for their exploration are seismical methods, due to relative large velocities of propagation of the elastic waves in gabbro. From geomechanical aspect, gabbro is very suitable for application in civil engineering due to its strength and elastic features, and its colour gives possibility to use it as decorative material
