Summary: Tacharanite in fractures in metagabbroic rocks filled by zeolitic assemblages has been found in the Gruppo di Voltri, Ligurian Alps. Optical properties, chemical analysis, and thermal data are reported, also mineralogical data on tobermorite found at another locality of the Gruppo di Voltri. Alteration of tacharanite into tobermorite and gyrolite was not observed, nor was an association of tacharanite and tobermorite.
