According to Elwell (1937), it is "a small quarry that was formerly worked for feldspar and quarry [quartz] at Flanders, 5 miles north of Woodbury, Conn., where good crystals of columbite, torbernite, green and yellow beryls are found." Huff and Huff (1992) state that it "was worked in a small open-pit operation reportedly beginning at least as long ago as the l890s." According to Russ Huff, it was reportedly once called the "Judson A.B.C. Quarry" (needs confirmation), a name that appears on some specimen labels attributed to a place in neighboring Southbury (see mineral photo gallery here), but apparently the Judson family held large tracts in Woodbury.

Reportedly, beryl from here was also sold as beryllium ore for use in the aerospace industry. As a result, there are not many beryl specimens in collections.

Detailed Mineral List:

Albite
Formula: Na(AlSi3O8)
Habit: blocky crystals
Colour: white
Description: Major component of the pegmatite, mostly massive, small crystals with muscovite and quartz found in small pockets.
Reference: Harold Moritz collection; Januzzi, Ronald E. (1976), The Mineral Localities of Connecticut and Southeastern New York State. Mineralogical Press, Danbury, Connecticut: 119.
Bertrandite
Formula: Be4(Si2O7)(OH)2
Habit: rectangular bar-shaped prisms, some radiating wagon-wheel trillings
Description: Micro crystals from altered beryl, typically as rectangular, bar-shaped crystals, some as three twinned, thin crystals radiating from a central point: "wagon-wheel" habit.
Reference: Henderson, William A., Jr. (1975), The Bertrandites of Connecticut. The Mineralogical Record: 6(3): 114-123.
Beryl
Formula: Be3Al2(Si6O18)
Habit: hexagonal prisms
Colour: yellow to pale green
Description: Anhedral to subhedral, opaque hexagonal crystals to 12 cm.

Bismuthinite
Formula: Bi2S3
Habit: elongated prisms
Colour: gray
