Mina Manuel Rodríguez


An old abandoned Cu mine.

During late may 2011, beautiful destinezite crystals have been found at this mine, ranking the best worldwide for this mineral.

Thank you to Dr. Tony Kampf LA County Museum, CA and Dr. Stuart Mills, Museum Victoria, Australia, for their work and identification of many of the species from this adit (M. Dini & A. Molina).

NOTE on the mineral list: "kröhnkite" and "blödite" collected at a small pond approximately 2.7 km from the workings at Coronel Manuel Rodriguez Mine turned out to be salammoniac (coloured by inclusions of copper minerals) and lecontite, respectively (e-rocks-link below).
