Red mica


Recommended Posts

Looks like your typical Muscovite Mica with some quartz (gray, rounded mineral).  Very nice sample.  The "red" looks like inclusions of Orthoclase Feldspar.

Lot of that here in the Morristown area and was mined back in the day, check out Anderson Mill it was a Mica and Berol processing plant and still stands in San Domingo wash today. Some areas with allot of Pegmatite have oodles laying around here so common I guess....
