This is NOT a mineral occurrence locality, but rather, a mineral collecting area on old mine dumps. The material placed here during mining operations was removed from the Buckwheat open cut via aerial tramways that were employed.

There are two mineral collecting areas on Taylor Road. One is about 100 meters East of its intersection with Buckwheat Road and one is at the western end of Taylor Road at its intersection with Buckwheat Road. This is the property of the Franklin Mineral Museum and a fee is required to collect here.

Mesoproterozoic

ID: 3188605
Mesoproterozoic crystalline metamorphic rocks

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Lithology: Paragneiss; paragneiss

Mesoproterozoic
1000 - 1600 Ma



ID: 2874051
Franklin Marble

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Franklin Marble

Description: White- to light-gray-weathering, white, grayish-white, or, less commonly pinkish-orange, coarse- to locally fine-crystalline calcite marble with accessory amounts of graphite, phlogopite, chondrodite, clinopyroxene, and serpentine. Contains pods and layers of clinopyroxene-garnet skarn, hornblende skarn, and clinopyroxene-rich rock. Thin layers of metaquartzite occur locally. Intruded by the Mount Eve Granite in the Pochuck Mountain area. Franklin Marble is host to the Franklin and Sterling Hill zinc ore bodies; exploited for talc and asbestiform minerals near Easton, Pennsylvania. Subdivided into an upper marble, "Wildcat marble," and a lower marble, "Franklin marble," by New Jersey Zinc Co. geologists (Hague and others, 1956).
