ID: 2726047
Plymouth Formation - dolostone member

Age: Cambrian (485.4 - 541 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Plymouth Formation

Description: Light-gray- to beige-weathering massive dolostone and bluish-gray-weathering mottled dolostone breccia and conglomerate, passing upward into more thinly bedded bluish-gray and buff dolostone breccia; dark-gray phyllitic dolostone and limestone in upper part. Correlative in part with boulder and conglomerate beds of the Dunham Dolostone near Rutland and with similar beds in the upper part of the Forestdale Formation. Eastern flank of the Green Mountain massif and eastern domes.
