Name(s) in local language(s):Ghiacciaio del Miage, Val Veny, Massiccio del Monte Bianco, Courmayeur, Val d'Aosta, Italia
Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 45° 46' 57'' North , 6° 52' 4'' East
Latitude & Longitude (decimal): 45.78266,6.86797
GeoHash:G#: u0hukq3p7
Locality type:Glacier
Köppen climate type:Dfc : Subarctic climate


Quite huge collecting area (glacial moraines and lateral rock falls) rich in meta-granite boulders hosting alpine fissures with well crystallized minerals

Provided coordinates are just a sort of mid point where the glacier turn into the main Veny Valley.


According to the analytical data (Scaini & Giorgetta, 1967; Passaglia, 1970), "chabazite" is nowadays ascribable to chabazite-Ca.
