Abstract

The Oxbow road cut in St. Lawrence County, New York, has produced an enormous quantity of calcite specimens during the past fifty years. These range in size from thumbnail specimens to large-cabinet specimens and in quality from good to outstanding. Of particular interest to collectors has been the presence of penetration twins of simple rhombohedra, the so-called Rossie-habit twins. The locality remains productive to the present day.
