A small outcrop set in Rio Capanne stream. There are big mineralized fractures into an polygenic and, locally, ophiolitic breccia, possibly belonging to the Casanova Complex, a Cretaceous formation directly liked to the extinction of the Ligurian-Piedmontese Ocean. In these fractures white scalenohedric crystals of calcite up to 3-4 cm (often twinned) can be found upon a thin brown microcrystalline dolomite layer.
