This is the old quarry from where a lot of the best elbaites and tourmalines from Isola Elba, Italy, have been recovered during the 19th century.

Grotta d'Oggi (literally, the "Today's cave") is the name given to a site, consisting of a system of five pegmatite dykes, located N of San Piero in Campo near a magnesite quarry in the valley of Fosso Bovalico. The exploitation of the site for mineral specimens by using quarrying techniques began in 1825.
