In the fall of 2014 the grading crews began construction of the now shopping center and hotel site. The site is adjacent to the Canwood Mall construction site from the 1980's made famous by Fred DeVito zeolite finds. This time they did not blast the hill, instead they graded many acres with top soil. Some large andesite boulders were moved and dumped on the top of the old construction dump. The building company allegedly set apart $70K+ for preserving the old oak trees on the top of a small hill in the middle of the property. The minerals found in the boulders, road cuts and the shallow trenches included calcite, dolomite, gemmy quartz, aragonite, analcime, chalcedony, opal, pyrite, marcasite, phillipsite, clinoptilolite, mordenite, ferrierite-K. The analcime sporadically shows cubic faces. The phillipsite was found as pink grain masses and also as white/grey stalactites with pyrite cores, the crystal sizes reaching 1/2mm. The largest ferrierite-K found was a flat circular spray of crystals 7mm in diameter. The ferrierite-K fluoresces very strong blue color in UV light, the clinoptilolite fluoresces medium blue. Both exhibit phosphorescence for many seconds after turning off the UV lamp.

Description: The fluoroapatite has been found on a few samples showing transparent hexagonal platelets up to 0.5mm, clear or yellow color. Associated with clinoptilolite and dark gray Fe-rich saponite. Found in dark grey andesite, most likely from the 2B andesite flow, see DeVito article for the description of andesite layers at the original site.
