Cerro Huañaquino is the eroded remnant of a dacite laccolith with several individually named summits. The foothills exhibit multicolored marls and related sediments of the (Cretaceous) Miraflores Formation.

Several localities producing outstanding octahedral magnetite crystals.
NOTE: Magnetite from Cerro Huañaquino was deliberately sold with the wrong locality attribution "Tazna mine".
