Cava Menegolli (Cava Marmi), Cogollo del Cengio, Val d'Astico (Valdastico), Vicenza, Veneto, Italia


Abandoned brucite marble quarry at 495 m a.s.l., SSE of Pedescala.

Menegolli quarry and the contiguous Pian dei Rossetti quarry (Cogollo del Cengio municipality) as well as other quarries in this area, exploited a brucite marble, commercially known as pearl grey marble, which is the product of contact metamorphism, originated from Cenozoic basaltic intrusions in Late Triassic (Norian) dolostone (Dolomia Principale Formation).

During the quarrying operations excellent crystals of brucite were recovered. Peculiar minerals at this quarry are artinite and tochilinite.
