Alpine clefts in a gneiss mass at the contact with mica schists and limestone on the north slope of Monte Muretto.

A cleft measuring 3 m x 30 cm x 40 cm, discoverd in 1980, yielded significant specimens of adularia, as white or slightly chloritised crystals to 6 cm on edge, and quartz, as smoky crystals reaching also 20 cm in length.
