Abandoned marble quarry located at 567 m a.s.l. in Val dei Nasi (a branch of Val de la Biolca), to the west of Pilcante. Brucite marble was quarried from 1969 to 1987.

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), and contains magnesium minerals such as brucite, hydromagnesite, and serpentine subgroup minerals. Some minerals (zeolites, etc.) are found in cavities of the magmatic rock.
