Albany Rose Quarry, Albany, Oxford County, Maine, USA

Microcline crystals, approximately 30 centimeters (12 inches) on longest dimension (work glove for scale), from Albany Rose Quarry, Oxford Co., Maine. Photographed in July 2008. The Albany Rose Quarry was developed over the summer of 2008 by Barry Heath on his property. Observed minerals of note were good microcline crystals up to one meter in three dimensions (sitting by the mine road on the way into the quarry), fluorapatite crystals up to 7.5 centimeters (3 inches) in length and over 2.5 centimeters (one inch) in diameter, some terminated, and massive pale rose quartz with some samples of excellent color.
