Monte Bregaceto, Borzonasca, Genova, Liguria, Italia


The mineralized rock is represented by an Oligocenic sandstone. It is very much fractured and crossed by quartz and albite veins, which often host interesting minerals.

In order to reach the collecting site, you must reach the town of Borzonasca, in the high Sturla Valley. In this country, we have to pay a toll for 5 € (Bar 4 Assi), the toll for the " Giacopiane Lake ". Exit Borzonasca and follow the road for about three kilometers, then turn right for Giacopiane Lake. Stop the car at the coordinates 44° 26' 50 N and 9° 23' 30 E.

The collecting site is outside of the Aveto Park where the search is free.
