Albitised pegmatite dyke located on the south slope Pizzo Marcio, few metres below the crest line connecting the summit of Pizzo Marcio (1924 m) to Dente di Sassoledo (1830 m).

The dyke outcrops for about 40 metres and can reach the thickness of 1.5 metres. The pegmatite has been transformed into a medium-grained albitised unit, which shows exocontacts composed of a greenish micaceous unit. Sporadic secondary cavities in the albitised unit are lined with albite crystals and host oxides of Nb–Ta, mainly columbite-Mn, and Be-silicates like bertrandite. Crystals of greenish beryl are rare; accessory phases like allanite-(Ce), cheralite, titanite, spessartine, and zircon are also rarely observed. Fersmite and vigezzite, two oxides of Nb–Ta that are typical for other albitised pegmatite bodies in Vigezzo Valley, have not been observed in this dyke. In the core of the pegmatite, left unaffected by the albitisation processes, K-feldspar, muscovite, and quartz are preserved, in addition to accessory phases such as rare prismatic crystals of pale blue beryl, spessartine, etc.
