Las Vigas amethyst crystals are found in several locations around the Piedra Parada village within Vera Cruz, Mexico. The crystals are contained inside solid vesicles within various andesite rock formations throughout the mountainous region. There are several mines throughout the andesitic rock formations that include La Cascada, La Callejones, El Bordo, La Flor, Ensenal, Los Volcanes, Torrecellas, La Mina Grande and La Loma. These mines are worked by the owners of the land and the villagers of the region, making up the majority of their income. Most of these mines are only accessible through old hiking trails.
