Capillitas Mine

Andalgalá Department, Catamarca Province, Argentina

Capillitas Mine is a complex gold, silver and copper mine, known for over 500 years. It bears a wide range of mineral species – Mindat lists over 120!

It is simply one of the best locales for Rhodochrosite worldwide, with fine banded stalactites in a range of bright and pastel pink colours. I recommend taking a moment to quickly google ‘Capillita stalactite’ to see some excellent cross sections.
