The Salobral Ravine (Salobre Ravine on modern topographic maps) is a classic reference for the type locality of the Teruelite. But this ravine, which is mostly sterile, flows into the Toconar Ravine, in which are the majority of most interesting samples in the area, generally small teruelites.

Geologically, the outcrops correspond with levels of Triassic age, corresponding to the Keuper facies.

Is necessary to comment that most of the samples attributed to these ravines, came from El Nabo Ravine, located closer Teruel, having better access, and more abundant and larger samples .

The whole area of Salobral and Toconar ravines is easily accessible from a track that part of the main road from Teruel to Villalba Baja, at the height of the Alfambra River Bridge to the east, and rises through the ravine of La Laguna.
