Warren Cummings' Photo Gallery

84D-L9WArsenopyrite, Phlogopite, Calcite

Lime Crest Quarry, Franklin Marble, Sparta Township, Sussex Co., New Jersey, USA

Dimensions: 1.75 inches x 1 inches x 1 inches
Largest Crystal Size: 0.75 inches

Arsenopyrite, slightly corroded and oxidized, in phlogopite-rich marble. Collected on May 20, 2001 from fragments of a corundum-bearing mineral assemblage found in blasted muck in the northeast quarter of the small pit north of the main quarry and just beyond the access road for the "Granite "plant. Other species found in close proximity include corundum, rutile, amphibole and minor margarite. There are probably others but their documentation would require thin section analysis.

Typical amygdule for this locality

Hightown Dike, Hightown, Highland Co., Virginia, USA

Although amygdules are very common they are nearly always completely filled. Open pockets with free standing crystals are very rare.

Probable site of "Occurrence No. 7"

Occurrence No. 7, Red Oak Mountain, Rappahannock Co., Virginia, USA

As near as this author can estimate from the available map in Baillieul and Daddazio (1982), the locality is in the bank under the trees on the right side of Fletcher's Mill road. However, given the scale of the map this isn't certain.

Bolmer Prospect location

Bolmer Copper prospect, Martinsville, Bridgewater Township, Somerset Co., New Jersey, USA

The location of the Bolmer Prospect is indicated in the upper center just west of Martinsville.

This map from the 1880's predates the Chimney Rock trap rock quarry but not the copper mines at that locality. Oddly, the copper mines at Chimney Rock, at lower right, aren't indicated.

Ajax Mine headframe

Ajax Mine, Cripple Creek Mining District, Teller Co., Colorado, USA

An old snapshot of the headframe of the Ajax Mine as it appeared in October 1977. At this time the mine was undergoing exploration and rehabilitation of a possible resumption of production. The effort lasted into the early 1980's. In 1977 most of the work was focused on the 3100 foot level, the level where the Carlton drainage tunnel terminated. One of the headframes of the Portland Mine can be seen on the horizon at the right.
