Volcán el Cántaro is the northernmost of a chain of volcanoes rising above the floor of the Colima rift zone. Cántaro, with Potassium-Argon ages ranging from 1.7 to 1.0 million years, is the oldest volcano of the Cántaro-Colima volcanic complex, which extends south through Nevado de Colima to the historically active Volcán de Colima. Cántaro is erosionally modified, but has many well-preserved andesitic-dacitic lava domes on its northern and eastern flanks. The biotite-bearing rocks of Cántaro contrast to the more mafic biotite-free rocks of Nevado de Colima and Volcán de Colima. The southward-migrating volcanism of the Cántaro-Colima chain is also reflected by a southward-younging progression at Cántaro itself.
