Granite pegmatite. List also include species found in the chlorite/actinolite schist host rocks. Hall's Ridge, Plumbago-Puzzle Mountain. - Oxford pegmatite field. Located in the Main Pegmatite sheet. Land currently owned by Plumbago Timber and Quarries LLC which permitted use of new mineral discovery information to appear on mindat.

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, by George Crooker. Rose Quartz crystals were found at the Nevel Quarry, Newry and in the Red Hill Quarry Group, Rumford, Maine in 1949. Rose Quartz crystals were not known in Brazil until 1958.

ID: 2887641
Silurian Smalls Falls Formation

Age: Silurian (423 - 433.4 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Smalls Falls Formation

Description: Named the Penobscot formation for Penobscot Bay, central-south ME. Consists of metamorphosed shaly sediments (slates, schists, quartzites) typically developed along nearly whole length of western shore of Penobscot Bay. Color varies from light gray through steel gray and purplish gray to black, the darker grays being predominant. Locally injected and metamorphosed by granite and diorite. Weathered surfaces usually rusty. In a few places only the rock exhibits a very perfect slaty cleavage, highly inclined to bedding planes. Conformably overlies Battie quartzite. (ME025) Unit description from USGS GEOLEX website (ME078). AA - Low rank amphibolite facies; AB - Medium rank amphibolite facies; AC - High rank amphibolite facies; E - Epidote-amphibolite facies; GS - Greenschist facies; Protolith C - Sulfidic/carbonaceous pelite
