The oldest (20 mya) and second largest of the Canary Islands. Primarily volcanic, the island is in a post-erosional stage, with the last eruption 4-5,000 years ago. A small ophiolite exposes basement rocks in the basal complex.

This entry on mindat.org covers the Island Council of Fuerteventura, which includes the Island of Fuerteventura and the nearby small Lobos Island.
