Versante sud del Monte Foscarino, Soave, Provincia di Verona, Veneto, Italia


Outcrop of basaltic rocks at an elevation of 194 m (see coordinates) in the proximity of a vineyard and not far from the roadside shrine known as "Capitello no. 4" or "Capitello Regina Coeli". Typical minerals inside the rock vescicles are chabazite-Ca, phillipsite-Ca, offretite, heulandite-Ca, saponite, calcite, and ranciéite (Pegoraro et al., 2017).


From another outcrop, located ca. 200 m to the northeast (coordinates 45.439427 N, 11.258779 E), offretite has been found in association with erionite, harmotome-phillipsite-Ca, and smectite group minerals (Mattioli et al., 2018).
