Granite pegmatite. Oxford field.

Primarily a mica quarry with four closely spaced nearly overlapping pits. Noted for its mineral specimen variety and for opaque pink toumaline fans in quartz and lepidolite matrix, some of which have been over 50 cm long. No tourmaline pockets have been found at this location to date, although occasional fraudulently labeled transparent rubellite specimens have been strongly promoted as "definitely one-of-a-kind" by their sellers. Locally, these are derisively attributed to "Maine-nibia", "Maine-istan", or "Maine-zil".The eosphorite from this locality was formerly the world record size (37 mm).

Not to be confused with the 'Black Mountain locality' (http://www.mindat.org/loc-6537.html).
