Shoreline expsoure along the Minas Basin. The rock is Early Carboniferous Windsor Group sandstone and conglomerate. The primary mineral is calcite, which is more common in the sandstone. Vertical veins along fault lines produce most specimens, though some isolated pockets have been found. A wide variety of forms are present and the crystals are often complex. They are also often twinned.
