The underlying rocks are ~ million year old granite (Lancelot et al., ), with local dykes of bright-green serpentine that outcrops along the Inca trail. The well-developed crystals within the granite (derived from its slow-cooling history as a magma) makes it an ideal rock for carving, hammer and making.
