Mt. Antero may be the highest elevation mineral-collecting locality in the contiguous 48 states, at over 13,000 feet (over 3,962m). It is generally accessible only in late summer and then is difficult due to summer storms and low oxygen levels in the air. It is located within the San Isabel National Forest, about 15 miles northwest of Salida, in a chain of 14,000-foot (4,267m) peaks in the Collegiate Range. Mineral specimens have been collected at Mt. Antero from pegmatites and miarolitic cavities in granite since 1885. (Jacobson, 1979).

Mount Antero is one of many peaks that exceed 14,000 feet (over 4,267m) in elevation in the Sawatch Mountain Range of Colorado. The Range is oriented from north to south along the western edge of South Park, a large, relatively flat, high mountain valley in central Colorado. The rocks of Mt. Antero are part of the Mt. Princeton Batholith that extends from Mt. Princeton (5.3 miles/8.5 kilometers north of Antero) southward to Shavano Peak.

The batholith is made up of granite and quartz monzonite. The granite is composed of oligoclase, orthoclase, quartz and minor amounts of hornblende and biotite. The monzonite consists of andesine, orthoclase, quartz, hornblende, and some sphene, apatite and iron oxides. The included pegmatites contain crystals of microcline and quartz, and secondary hydrothermal minerals such as beryl (aquamarine), phenakite, albite, bertrandite, and fluorite.
