Granite pegmatite in the Oxford pegmatite field. Mount Mica is the second oldest elbaite occurrence in North America, after Clarkes Ledge Quarry, Chesterfield, Massachusetts (King, 2010; King and Teixeira, 2010). Mount Mica was found in October 1821 by two professional men: one a doctor of medicine, Ezekiel Holmes, and one a lawyer, Elijah Hamlin. The day following the discovery was marked by a surprise early snowfall preventing further exploration until Hamlin's younger brothers drilled and blasted the ledge in the summer of 1822.(Although there are numerous reports which cite Augustus Hamlin's histories of the locality claiming an 1820 discovery, the date is incorrect for many reasons and the actual snowfall date is now known (Sturtevant, 1948; Perham, 1987, King, 2000, 2001, 2006a,b, 2012). Analysis of snowfall records made by Parker Cleveland as well as a search of Oxford County town histories corroborate Sturtevant (1948) and Perham (1987) and point to October 18, 1821, as the day of the discovery of Mount Mica and the famous snowstorm covering Mount Mica until the spring (King, 2012). Mount Mica is an LCT-class granite pegmatite.

The first Rose Quartz crystals known in the world were found at Mount Mica Quarry about 1913-1915. The second locality for genuine rose quartz crystals in the world, the Dunton Gem Quarry, Newry, produced its first crystals in 1927. A third world locality was discovered in 1942, at the Rose Quartz Crystal locality, also in Newry. Rose Quartz crystals were not known in Brazil until 1958.

It is particularly interesting that some pink Mount Mica tourmaline fluoresces blue in short-wave ultraviolet light, but that property is not so widespread at Mount Mica as the very fluorescent tourmaline of the Dunton Quarry, Newry (q.v.). Fluorescence is not a property that can be unambiguously used to differentiate genuine Mount Mica tourmaline from mislabeled Mount Mica tourmaline, but there may be useful comparisons when known and suspected specimens are examined at the same time.

Local rocks include Silurian Sangerville Formation Anasagunticook member.

Silurian Sangerville Formation, Anasagunticook member

Age: Llandovery (433.4 - 443.8 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Anasagunticook Member

Description: Silurian Sangerville Formation Anasagunticook member

Comments: In western sequence of central Maine trough, divided into a main body, lower member near Woodstock (schist and granofels probably equivalent to member B), upper member near Woodstock (schist and granofels probably equivalent to member C), member A (in turn divided into gray shale and massive sandstone facies, massive sandstone facies, and polymict conglomerate facies), member B (in turn divided into quartz-rich, polymictic conglomerate facies and gray shale and sandstone facies), and member C (in turn divided into quartz conglomerate, sandstone, and gray shale; impure limestone and quartz conglomerate lenses; and upper gray shale and sandstone). (ME004) Unit description from USGS GEOLEX website (ME078). E - Epidote-amphibolite facies; AA - Low rank amphibolite facies; AB - Medium rank amphibolite facies; Protolith H - Lithic sandstone and conglomerate. Original map source: Digital bedrock data downloaded from Maine Office of GIS in September 2005; permission to redistribute these data granted by Dr. Robert Marvinney, State Geologist of Maine, in September 2006. Based on 1985 paper geologic map (Reference ME002).
