Chromitite pods in a phlogopitic peridotite metasomatized by carbonatitic mantle plume fluids.

Many localizations (11 km) are known for the pods:
- Alpe Polunia, municipality of Cursolo Orasso
- Rio Creves, municipality of Malesco
- Provola Creek, municipality of Malesco
- Rio del Ferro, municipality of Re

Provided Reference coordinates are referred to Rio Creves Quarry. In the creek not far from the quarry a single boulder with idiomorphic crystals of Chromite was found: crystals could be preserved because they were hosted within pyroxenes at the uncommon intersection between a restitic layer of massive chromite and a metasomatic vein of clino-pyroxene. Another similar boulder was found at Provola Creek.
