Abandoned brucite marble quarry.

This brucite marble, commercially known as pearl grey marble, is the product of contact metamorphism, originated from Cenozoic basaltic intrusions in Late Triassic dolostone (Dolomia Principale Formation). Some minerals (tacharanite etc.) are found in cavities of the magmatic rock.
