Major Regional Geological Units
This information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.
|Early Cambrian - Neoproterozoic|
513 - 1000 Ma
|Hoosac Formation - albite-quartz granofels member|
Light-gray- to whitish-gray-weathering, massive to thickly bedded medium-grained biotite-white albite-quartz granofels; locally is a medium-gray, finer grained, more biotite-rich albitic quartz schist of gneissic aspect. Eastern flank of the Green Mountain massif and eastern domes.
541 - 1000 Ma
1000 - 1600 Ma
|Mesoproterozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes|
Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.
