Large marble quarry located at Campo Francesco, on the right hydrographic side of the Fosso delle Madielle depression.

In the last decades, this quarry has become famous owing to the very nice specimens of tetrahedrite collected here. Further researches allowed the finding of other good samples of sulfides. Minerals can be found in vugs of grey metadolostone. In addition to cm-sized crystals of tetrahedrite, nice samples of luzonite and fluorite have been collected.
