Miniera d'Ortano, Rio Marina, Isola d'Elba, Livorno, Toscana, Italia


Located only 11 m above sea level. Has been exploited from 1952 to 1964, mainly in galleries, for pyrite, and has been destroyed by the Ortano Mare building up. The ore body is hosted by hedenbergitic skarn; in a gallery at -8 meters (now flooded by the sea), ilvaite crystals up to 20 cm were found!
