Located in the Province of Misiones – Argentina, 40 km from the Iguaçu region, are mines of quartz, amethyst and agate crystals. In a short walk we observe these geoda-shaped minerals within the basalt, a rock of volcanic origin that makes up the entire soil of the region. The mines are in the open and also dug into the rock, access through tunnels.
Visit to the stoning workshop and commercial point of sale.
Usually this visit is combined with another, such as Iguazu Falls on the Argentine side or Jesuit Ruins.
Duration of on-site visit: 1h
