Name(s) in local language(s): Cresta di Fontillon Damon, Complesso minerario di Servette-Chuc, Saint-Marcel, Valle d'Aosta, Italia
 
Located in front of the Fontillon slag deposit. Its rocks consist of banded garnet glaucophanite with prismatic lawsonite pseudomorphs (composed of zoisite, clinozoisite, albite, calcite, paragonite and chlorite), clinopyroxene veins, glaucophane-bearing eclogite, chlorite schists. In ancient times, probably during the Middle Ages, chlorite schists were exploited for millstone manufacturing.
