Hello,
I have planned to visit south Tyrol next summer (Brixen area, Badia, Cortina...)
After searching on mindat, I cannot find any significant minerals from this area.
I guess that dolomite can be found in Dolomites ?

Maybe, some members may have a good knowledge and could confirm or give any data interesting on this area.
Sante ? Volkmar ?

Thank you,
Philippe

Hi, Philippe.

I'm sorry but, concerning Italian South-Tyrol, although it is rich in good Alpine minerals, the area you mentioned, as far as I know, doesn't offer any quality specimens.
I'm afraid that if you want to combine holidays and minerals you have to choose another area.
On Mindat you can find hundreds of interesting localities in Trentino-South Tyrol.

Good luck.
Sante

Hi to everybody!
Ok, in Alto Adige there is almost no gemstone quality specimen, but there is a big variety of collection quality minerals! For instance, I found interesting anatases, zeolites, albite, orthoclase etc. Moreover, there are a number of books regarding mineralogy in Trentino and Alto Adige, including the very famous Guida Mineralogica d'Italia by Vincenzo De Michele.
For researching and collecting minerals in the territory, there are special rules I don't remember right now.

thanks a lot for your information

so I will do tourism without minerals :)

I did not really plan to do some active field rockhouding, but when hiking I always have a look on rocks and may be...


but I will study your link and have a look on mindat on a broader area.

thank you again

Finally I have found something which is not on Mindat.

in Tiso (Teis in German), in Val di Funes, south of Brixen, there is a small mineral museum where you can see a lot of locally extracted geodes.

The geodes are extracted from an old volcanic rock formation (sorry I have not noted the exact geology context). It seems to be a very hard compact and dark rock (looks like Herkimer diamond rock formations).

The mineralogy inside the geodes is mainly Quartz (Amethyst), with minor Calcite, Chabazite, Stilbite, and micro minerals presented as Stibnite.

The geodes size goes up to 10 cm, and some are pretty nice mineral specimens
Sadly, none were on sale in the shop (only the basic usual Brazilian stuff).

Aside, there is a collection of Swiss minerals (quartz mainly), and I noticed several superlative Swiss hematites :) (sadly no precise locality) specimens in the cabinet size

A place to visit if you are in the area. There is an internet site, but the link is rejected by the forum security system
