This black Warwickite crystal is in a chunk of the Franklin Marble. Collected at Edenville, from a private collection.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock that can sometimes weather into very weird shapes. This one was found by a local resident. Most limestone is composed of tiny fragments of marine organisms such as coral and mollusks. Warwick's limestone is one visible trace of the fact that this land was once under the sea.
Iron Ore - Hematite
Iron ore often has a reddish cast to it or looks "rusty."
