The Town of Warwick, New York, covers approximately 104 sq. miles. Amity and Edenville are among many unincorporated areas within the town. Amity is approximately 2 miles west of Edenville. Virtually all the famous minerals listed for the Amity – Edenville area are derived from the Franklin Marble. Amity is near the center of the Franklin Marble belt, while the village of Edenville proper is east of it in terrain underlain by Paleozoic dolomites and slate. The accepted locality terminology is that Edenite Hill is referred to as Edenville, while the lower western slope of that feature is ascribed to Amity. The unofficial boundary is where the slope of Edenite Hill essentially flattens. There is coincidentally a small rounded gully along the Pipeline Locality where the slope of Edenite Hill extends below the general level of the flatter terrain to the West, but that feature is very localised and not apparent in the wooded sections of western Edenite Hill. The Amity coordinates refer to the center of the village and not to a mineral locality, although there are several important mineral localities nearby.

This Amity-Edenville area has attracted collectors since the early 19th century. Since the landscape is generally gentle and outcrops are small and scattered, it was originally a “stone wall fence” locality. A few outcrops that yielded unusual mineral assemblages, such as large spinels, were excavated with black powder. In the present era the area is gradually suburbanising and so exposures are occasionally available in the foundation excavations for the new "McMansions".

The mineralogy of this classic area, and of the Franklin Marble in general, has received some attention in the past 35 years. The geological environment of the Franklin Marble and its associated rocks is gradually coming into focus. Major advances in the understanding of this area have recently been made and investigations are ongoing.
