Mineralized scoria at the Braen Quarry 2009

Braen Quarry, Haledon, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
 
 
One of the thirteen original states of the USA. Areas of principal mineralogical interest are the two zinc ore bodies at Franklin and Ogdensburg in Sussex County, the zeolite occurrences in the traprock deposits (basalt & diabase) of the Watchung Mountains and Palisades Diabase, plus the numerous former iron mines in the highlands, and phosphate occurrences in the southern portion of the state.
