The massive core of a hornblende-andesite lava flow several hundred meters long forms the northern summit ridge of Nevado de Colima volcano. A light coating of snow drapes the summit cone of Nevado de Colima, which was constructed within the youngest of three overlapping calderas. This post-caldera cone has been extensively glaciated.
