Karst complex located in Valle delle Rozze (right side), on the south-eastern flank of Monte Coronato, and hosting iron ore mineralisations exploited in pre-Roman times. The brown iron ore (limonite) originated from oxidised skarn bodies containing sulphides (northern fringes of the large skarn masses of the Temperino-Lanzi mining area).

This mined cave is famous for the spectacular druses of aurichalcite, which appears as tufts of acicular to lanceolate crystals up to 1 cm in length.
