The ancient basement rocks of southern Colorado were formed during Proterozoic orogenies, mostly in the middle Proterozoic, 1.0 to 1.8 billion years ago. A great variety of granites and metamorphic rocks make up the Proterozoic crust. These rocks have been uplifted to form the cores of many ranges of the Rocky Mountains, including the Culebra Range of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

The erosional resistance of the these crystalline rocks supports the high peaks. The period from late Proterozoic through middle Paleozoic was a time of stable continental conditions in which various sedimentary strata were deposited in shallow seas and low-lying land environments. Limestone, dolostone, sandstone, and shale mark this interval. Beginning in the Pennsylvanian, a significant change took place in Colorado tectonics.
