A mountain miner parish (elevation: 2,000 m. asl) whose surroundings are well known for several minerals. Deformed Cambrian-Ordovician gneiss, metaquartzite, granites, pegmatites and amphibolites. Mylonitic zone trending NNE controls intrusion of Tertiary calc-alkaline volcanics (trachyandesite). Lenses of hydrothermal breccia occupy semicircular arcs associated with domes and explosion breccias. Different alteration types include: argillization, sericitization+pyritization, silicification, propylization (chlorite+carbonate+hematite, +/- epidote, +/- pyrite).

Kyanite: Manifestations "Gaston II and San Martín", Santo Domingo, and La Carolina, San Luis: occurs in fibrous aggregates of celestial color lenses and pockets hosted in pegmatite and micacites contact. Individuals, up to 30 cm in size, form aggregates parallel or divergent.
