Name(s) in local language(s):Dirupo Forcel Rosso, Monte Foppa (fianco nord), Massiccio dell'Adamello, Parco Naturale Adamello-Brenta, Val Camonica, Provincia di Brescia, Lombardia, Italia
Locality type:Gully


Miarolitic gem-bearing LCT pegmatites in a gully ("Vallone del Forcel Rosso") on the steep slope of Forcel Rosso pass (north slope of the Foppa Mt., height 2752 m a.s.l.), disrupted in large blocks in an ancient landslide, at an altitude of about 2600 m.

Represents the first discovery of a gem-bearing LCT pegmatite in the Alps. Discovered by Mr Giancarlo Celio, a collector, in November 1999. The pegmatite field is hosted in the thermometamorphic aureole of the tonalitic Adamello pluton (Alpine age). Maximum pegmatite vein widths are 1.5 meters and the bodes may be some tens of meters long.

NOTE: This locality is within one of the protected zones of the park and collecting is only allowed for scientific purposes.
