Punta della Rossa/Rothorn (2887 m) is one of the main peaks in the Alpe Devero area, together with the more famous Mount Cervandone. Different from Mount Cervandone, Punta della Rossa is mostly composed of metamorphosed ultramafic rocks (serpentines s.l.) of the Geisspfad complex and the majority of the reported minerals are hosted in veins and fissures within the ultramafics. A lot of sub-localities exist under this general name, including a very small and limited mine, and extending towards Geisspfad and the Crampiolo Peak.

Provided geographical coordinates refer to the east flank of Punta della Rossa, easily accessible but not necessarily the best collecting site. The whole area around is to be considered prospective.
