Newly Listed Minerals - December 1 Mineral Update


Minerals from Upper New Street Quarry, New Jersey - Part III (final from Upper New Street Q.)

The minerals below are part of a newly acquired mineral collection of specimens from the zeolite cavities of New Jersey. This week I am posting the third and last group from Upper New Street Quarry (formerly known as Burger's Quarry) in Peterson, New Jersey that quarried trap rock from 1893-1925. After the quarry closed, it was an industrial site, then the site was cleared for a housing development. Blasting in the 1980s, prior to condominium construction, on the quarry rim allowed collectors access and produced new mineral finds. But the quarry has been closed since then and is posted No Trespassing. Collectors still sneak in occasionally, but the zeolite cavities are now buried beneath rubble and not many  minerals have been collected in the past 15 years.

The minerals posted this week are noteworthy for the fine quality and lack of damage. Specimens of this quality from Upper New Street Quarry are now only found in old collections. Many below represent unusual combinations, associations or paragenesis, and were the collection of Prof. Martin Becker, geology professor at William Paterson College.
