This quarry, officialy named Strinato B or Quarry No. 89 and known among mineral collectors as Lucchetti, is located to the east of the quarries Scaloni B and Fantiscritti B.

It is one of the most famous quarries in the Miseglia (Miseglia-Fantiscritti) basin, particularly well-known for the occurrences of nice specimens of sphalerite, wurtzite, and several other sulfides, usually found in cavity within the so-called "macchia bianca". Furthermore, good specimen of sulphur, consisting of well-formed and shiny crystals up to 1 cm in size, have been collected.

It is the type locality of zincalstibite (Bonaccorsi et al., 2007), a layerd double hydroxide (LDH) compound. In the holotype material, zincalstibite occurs in a small cavity, astrigonal prismatic crystals, white in colour, with a vitreous luster, less than 50 μm in length. It is associated with sub-millimeter tufts of white crystals of mimetite and sub-millimeter stalactite aggregates of opal and an amorphous copper-silicate phase (possibly chrysocolla). Zincalstibite appears to have formed as alteration product of different sulfides, such as sphalerite, zinkenite, and Sb-rich luzonite (whose relics were found together with crystals of zincalstibite), through the action of late-stage Al-rich hydrothermal fluids. From a structural point of view, zincalstibite from the Carrara marble is the 1T polytype (Mills et al., 2012).
