Racine County is underlain by Silurian sedimentary rocks, primarily dolostones. Quarries can yield some well-crystallized specimens, such as the find of smoky calcite, marcasite and other minerals at the Vulcan Materials Corporation Quarry near Racine. Exposures of this rock can yield interesting Silurian fossils from reefs and associated environments. Thick glacial sediments obscure the bedrock in most places. Beach combing along Lake Michigan's shore can provide interesting samples of local and glacially transported rocks.
