8MT-VK0Chalcopyrite, Calcite

Laurel Hill, Secaucus, Hudson Co., New Jersey, USA

Dimensions: 7.5 cm x 6.5 cm x 4 cm

Golden chalcopyrite crystals associated with calcite on diabase matrix. The bright chalcopyrite crystals offer an aesthetic contrast to the white calcite. Much of the chalcopyrite from this occurrence was found in the sandstone area; this specimen is one of the few chalcopyrites I have seen from the diabase zone, as indicated by its matrix. Ex Ken Hogan, ex John Betts, ex Eric Stanchich. Contains Ken Hogan's signature Laurel Hill label as well as John Betts' label (#1052). Acquired from Eric Stanchich in July 2016. Hershel Friedman collection and photo.

Fibrous "Mountain Leather" that is soft and feathery. This material is documented from the locality but was not common there.

A shiny crystal plate of white datolite with a light green tinge, on a course diabase matrix. In association with some small elongated stilbite crystals. Datolite is uncommon at this locality.

QVG-RH9Quartz (Var: Chalcedony), Celadonite

Wesley Hills, Town of Ramapo, Rockland Co., New York, USA

Dimensions: 9.5 cm x 9.5 cm x 3.5 cm

A dark green, opaque chalcedony, with inclusions and a surface layer of celadonite. Celadonite is fairly common at this locality filling the sides of vugs in the volcanic basalt. Some of the areas contain a brownish hue which may technically qualify it as jasper. Collected by Barry Keegan, and acquired by Hershel Friedman in 2018. Hershel Friedman collection and photo.

0L3-QX2Chalcedony (Var: Agate), Quartz (Var: Chalcedony)

Wesley Hills, Town of Ramapo, Rockland Co., New York, USA

Dimensions: 10 cm x 10 cm x 5 cm

A combination of gray translucent chalcedony and white banded agate. This is a large mass on a nodular mass of basalt from the Ladentown formation. Collected by Hershel Friedman in 2013. Hershel Friedman collection and photo.

LJN-JXDStilbite subgroup

Rockland Co., New York, USA

Dimensions: 11.5 cm x 8.5 cm x 4.5 cm

Beige stilbite crystals filling a seam in course diabase with a small vertical pocket which allowed the crystals to grow. The old label just says "Palisades Park, Rockland County, New York". Palisades Park is a reference to the Palisades Interstate Park system that preserves a major part of the Palisades geological formation in New York and New Jersey. My guess is that this is from the Haverstraw area, as I have very similar material to this from that area. However, without any real evidence, I cannot label is such definitively. Original collection of John Weigand. Collection and photo of Hershel Friedman.

Y91-PEEPectolite

West Nyack, Clarkstown, Rockland Co., New York, USA

Dimensions: 12 cm x 8 cm x 6 cm

A thick vein of dense radiating pectolite crystals filling a seam in diabase. This habit of pectolite is prevalent in the Hudson Palisades. This specimen was collected by Jack Troy in the 1970's. I acquired this specimen in 2015 from Brad Plotkin, who had received this specimen from Jack Troy. Specimen is labelled as J36 under Jack Troy's labeling system. Hershel Friedman specimen and photo.

GTF-DDHPrehnite

Wesley Hills, Town of Ramapo, Rockland Co., New York, USA

Dimensions: 8 cm x 6 cm x 5.5 cm

Green prehnite with yellowish iron staining, with unusual tabular form formed from an epimorph of a dissolved mineral at the center. The dissolved mineral is most likely anhydrite, as it very closely resembles the prehnite epimorphs of anhyhdrite from the nearby Paterson area. Found at the Steinway St. construction, when a residential home was being renovated, and the excavations revealed zeolites and associated traprock minerals from the Ladentown Basalt formation. Collected in 2008 by Hershel Friedman. Hershel Friedman specimen and photo.

W16-3WYChabazite

Wesley Hills, Town of Ramapo, Rockland Co., New York, USA

Dimensions: 6 cm x 3.5 cm x 1.5 cm

Small white chabazite rhombs from the Steinway St. construction. Chabazite was rare at this locality, discovered by Hershel Friedman in 2008, when a residential home was being renovated, and the excavations revealed zeolites and associated traprock minerals from the Ladentown Basalt formation. Collected in Mar 2008 by Hershel Friedman. Hershel Friedman specimen and photo.
