This mountain massif consists not only of calcareous rocks deriving from the sedimentation of animal shells and skeletons in the seabed of the very ancient sea of the Mesozoic era, but also of siliceous walls organized in parallel thin plates mixed with loose elements (schists) originating from the slow but constant deposit throughout the centuries of shells of microorganisms (diatoms and radiolarians) and of siliceous sponges on the seabed. Not only: in Pizzo Cane, inside the limestone, there are intrusions by volcanic rocks which sometimes outcrop.
