One of the old, obscure iron mines near the Franklin Pond, South of the zinc orebody. The workings included the Furnace shaft about 100' deep vertically, then another possible 100' on an incline. These workings are now covered over. Ore was magnetite. Operated 1867 until November 1881. This locality is within the Franklin Mining District.

NOTE: Old specimens labeled as coming from "Franklin Furnace" are from Franklin before 1913, when the name of the town was changed from "Franklin Furnace" to "Franklin."

Mesoproterozoic crystalline metamorphic rocks

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Lithology: Paragneiss; paragneiss

Mesoproterozoic
1000 - 1600 Ma



ID: 2874051
Franklin Marble

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Franklin Marble

Description: White- to light-gray-weathering, white, grayish-white, or, less commonly pinkish-orange, coarse- to locally fine-crystalline calcite marble with accessory amounts of graphite, phlogopite, chondrodite, clinopyroxene, and serpentine. Contains pods and layers of clinopyroxene-garnet skarn, hornblende skarn, and clinopyroxene-rich rock. Thin layers of metaquartzite occur locally. Intruded by the Mount Eve Granite in the Pochuck Mountain area. Franklin Marble is host to the Franklin and Sterling Hill zinc ore bodies; exploited for talc and asbestiform minerals near Easton, Pennsylvania. Subdivided into an upper marble, "Wildcat marble," and a lower marble, "Franklin marble," by New Jersey Zinc Co. geologists (Hague and others, 1956).
