Note: Mun. de Profesor Rafael Ramírez is the old name of this municipality.
Las Vigas de Ramírez is also the name of a city.

The famous amethysts apparently do not come from here, but from several mines near the village of Piedra Parada, in Mun. de Tatatila (see http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-99316.html).
