Mineral Specimen #2224    Calcite, Hematite, Quartz

Chimney Rock Quarry (The Bound Brook Quarry), Bridgewater Township, Somerset Co., New Jersey, USA

Ex. MacKay School of Mines, Ex. Steve Pullman

Two different generations of Calcite with differing habits can be found on this specimen. The largest crystal is twinned and is perched upon a bed of smaller, cubic crystals. The largest crystal has Hematite crystals both on its surface and included within. The included Hematite is a reddish color and the micro crystals on the surface are a dark, metallic gray. The Calcite rests on Quartz which has bands of gray, red/orange and white. The orange material is a bit chalky in texture and botryoidal in places. There is also some darker red material which would be considered a Jasper. The specimen is in fairly good condition, but there is some bruising of the Calcite, most notably, the edge of the largest crystals.
