Centerville, Virginia 1969

Fairfax quarry (Centreville Quarry; Sisslers Quarry), Centreville, Culpeper Basin, Fairfax Co., Virginia, USA

A view of the quarry at Centerville that produced what are certainly the best apophyllite specimens in the United States. The place where the good apophyllite and Prehnite specimens were found was up against the quarry wall nest to the highway which you can see on your left. No more moving rock in that direction till they move the highway.
