Many years ago the Italian collector Achille Panunzi made a major find when he opened a pocket on the north slope of Monte Somma near the small town of Santa Anastatia. Thousands of hematite floater specimens fell out, varying in size from a few mm to about 10 cm. Now 15 cm thick trees grows at the locality. Fov: 15 mm. The specimen is in the micromount collection of OT. Ljøstad.
