Abandoned quarries opened into metagabbro, serpentines, and diabase.

The quarries located in the municipal territory of Prato include:
- Cave dell'Acqua and Cave di Pian di Gello, to the west of Figline di Prato;
- Cava Rossa, to the north of Figline di Prato;
- Cave di Cerreto, near Cerreto;
- Cave di Monte Piccioli (also known as Cave del Benini), on the eastern slope of Monte Piccioli.

The quarries located in the municipal territory of Montemurlo include:
- Cave di Case Serilli, to the east of Bagnolo di Sopra;
- Cava di Monte Mezzano (also known as Cava Pazzi), on the western slope of Monte Mezzano;
- Cava Volpaia, to the southeast of Bagnolo di Sopra.

Babingtonite, as black prismatic crystals, has been found at Cava Rossa with quartz and prehnite in quartz veinlets cutting diabase (Franzini et al., 1978; Boscardin, 1978). Minerals occurring at Cava Rossa include analcime, epidote, dolomite, pumpellyite, laumontite, and calcite.

Zircon crystals, already described for the first time at Cave dell'Acqua by Corsi (1881), have been found again at the same place in association with apatite, titanite, magnetite, epidote, actinolite, prehnite, and pyrite (Brizzi & Meli, 1993).

Datolite, a typical ophiolite mineral, has been found at the quarries near Cerreto, Case Serilli and to the west of Figline.

At Cava Volpaia a rich mineral assemblage occurs, including andradite var. topazolite, diopside, tremolite, clinochlore, epidote, prehnite, titanite, magnetite, talc, aragonite, calcite, antigorite, chrysotile, pyrite, marcasite, pyrrhotite, millerite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, ilmenite, saponite, zoisite var. thulite, and opal (Brizzi et al., 1996).
