Outcropping dike near Serra San Bruno municipality (Fiumarella di Guido) considered by the ancient authors (Cortese,1895 f.e.) talc var. steatite and used as refractory material for the furnaces of Mongiana (Borbonic Age), but also for statues and votive objects.
Actually the so-called steatite, or indurated talc, from Serra S. Bruno, consists of a mixture of muscovite and chlorite with some quartz, rutile, and zircon. It is the product of pneumatolytic or hypothermal mineralization. (Penta F., De Cindio A.,1941)
