Alpine fissures with a typical red anatase, clorite and quartz paragenesis are speread within amphibolites \ amphibolitic gneiss. The site is about across the national boundary between Austria and Italy

Mineral finds have also been reported from the Austrian side of the pass (see: http://www.mindat.org/loc-58133.html).
