One of the localities along one of the many ridges on the western flank of Mt. Malosa. Around 2005, large pegmatite boulders with parisite- bearing cavities were found in the area. These originated from the Chitukani cliff. From this cliff, a dangerous place to work, cutable parisite crystals up to 5 cm long is known.
