  • Alkali feldspar trachytes are rare rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1993 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from Victoria Land and formed during the Cenozoic events. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for petrological, geochemical, geochronological and tectonic aims.

  • Alkali feldspar syenites are rare rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1988 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from Victoria Land and formed during two different magmatic events. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for petrological, geochemical, geochronological and tectonic aims.

  • Andesites are rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1986 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from Victoria Land and formed at different times under different igneous events. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for petrological, geochemical and geochronological aims.

  • Arkoses are rare rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1989 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from Victoria Land and testify the existence of the supercontinent Gondwana. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for their petrography, provenance and fossiliferous content.

  • Alkali feldspar granites are rare rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1987 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from Victoria Land and they formed at different times during two different orogenic events. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide.

  • Arenites are rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1988 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from different regions and testify the existence of the supercontinent Gondwana. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for their petrography, provenance and fossiliferous content.

  • Anorthosites are very rare rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1993 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from different regions and formed at different times and different igneous events. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for petrological, geochemical and geochronological aims.

  • Basanites are rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1985 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from Victoria Land and formed under the Cenozoic igneous event. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for petrological, geochemical and geochronological aims.

  • Carbonaceous chondrites - CM are meteorites collected during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 2015 in Victoria Land and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide.

  • Aplites are rocks sampled during the Italian Antarctic Expeditions since 1985 and are now preserved at the repository of the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide. They come from different regions and formed at different times under different igneous events. They have been classified at the Museo Nazionale dell’Antartide and studied by researchers for petrological, geochemical and geochronological aims.
