Granite pegmatite. Feldspar quarry opened in 1930; also produced about 500 pounds of pollucite. In 1936, rare trapezohedral pollucite crystals to 2 mm were found in cavities in corroded petalite. The phosphate minerals present are generally very manganese-rich although old references incorrectly suggest that iron-rich species, etc. were found. Bright pink masses of montmorillonite are famous from this location. Now worked for mineral specimens, including rare pseudocubic quartz crystals. The granite pegmatite is hosted by calc-silicate Patch Mountain member of the Sangerville Formation which contains, diopside, vesuvianite, scheelite, etc.

Oxford pegmatite field. Erroneously called the Howard Quarry by Morrill, P., Rocks & Min.: 16: 279.

Stratigraphic Name: Sangerville Formation

Description: 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). GS - Greenschist facies; E - Epidote-amphibolite facies; AA - Low rank amphibolite facies; AB - Medium rank amphibolite facies; Protolith Q - Interbedded pelite and sandstone
