Capillitas Mining District Argentina

the mineral rhodochrosite

Capillitas Renowned for Rhodochrosite

The Capillitas mine in Argentina is home to some of the world's largest rhodochrosite stalactites.

It's located in the Capillitas mining district at an altitude of 10,000 feet.  For this reason access to the mine has never been easy.

The famous banded rhodochrosite from the Capillitas mine was first described in 1873.  It was later given the name Inca Rose Rhodochrosite.

The incredible rhodochrosite mineral in our photo is from the collection of The Arkenstone.
