At some points on the right bank of the Camarillas Reservoir, nodules of menilite opal can be found. These nodules are also called "Idolillos de Agramón" due to their sometimes anthropomorphic or zoomorphic shapes. This reservoir is located in Los Almadenes Canyon, where the Mundo River runs.

En algunos puntos de la ribera derecha del Embalse de Camarillas pueden recogerse nódulos de ópalo menilito o menilita, también denominados Idolillos de Agramón por sus formas en ocasiones antropomórficas o zoomórficas. Dicho embalse está situado en el Cañón de Los Almadenes, por donde discurre el río Mundo.
