Granite pegmatite quarry about 10 km from the town of Tanti. The blue cobaltoan genthelvite from here, now widely distributed in collections, is not from the pegmatite body itself, but from a younger vein of friable specular hematite that cuts across the pegmatite body.

Main Mineralization:
Triplite (coppery brown color):
Mines El Criollo and El Gaucho, Cerro Blanco, Tanti Department. Punilla, Cordoba: The core zone, large masses or bochones of up to 5 m in diameter. The meteoric action alters it to strengite, phosphosiderite, bermanite, libethenite, dufrenite, eosphorite, and rockbridgeite.

Eosphorite (reddish-brown color):
El Criollo Mine, Cerro Blanco, Tanti Department Punilla Córdoba. With bermanite, phosphosiderite and manganese oxides as products of alteration of triplite.

Bermanite (microcrystals, brown caramel color):
In pegmatites of the Cerro Blanco, Tanti, Punilla Department, Córdoba. In thin crusts between the products of alteration of the triplite present in this locality's pegmatites. It is associated with phosphosiderite, eosphorite, and pachnolite. Also deposited directly on manganese oxides or covered partially by them.

Strengite (microcrystals, rose-purple color):
El Criollo Mine, Cerro Blanco, Department Punilla, Cordoba. Occurs in drusen material altered pegmatitic bodies, accompanied by apatite, sulphides and quartz; also in thin crusts covering cracks in triplite; less frequent as aggregates of radial-fibrous spherulites.

Phosphosiderite (microcrystals, violet color):
El Criollo Mine, Cerro Blanco, Department Punilla, Cordoba. Frequently as druses with beautiful crystals of 1 mm, well developed, very varied habits.

Torbernite, Metatorbernite:
Cerro Blanco, Tanti, Punilla Department, Cordoba. The pegmatite carries primary and secondary uranium minerals.
