The Anahi Mine lies in a heavily-forested area of plains and rolling hills in the tropical lowlands of far eastern Bolivia, close to the border of Brazil. (Some mineral descriptions for Anahi Mine state it is in the high Andes, but that is not true.) The mine exploits quartz veins in dolomitic limestone. Its products include amethyst (on average, 44% of production by weight), ametrine (33% of production) and citrine (23% of production), along with colorless or milky quartz of little or no value and not quantified above. Most of the mining occurs underground, although some strip pits have been opened.
